  • 2 Tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 cup canned sweet corn {you can also use fresh or frozen in place of canned}

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Feel free to use ground beef in place of the ground turkey or even leave the meat out all together. You can also add other ingredients to the casserole like black beans, bell peppers and a variety of cheeses.
