Turkey Nachos

What do you do when you have 24 leftover corn tortillas? You make nachos!

In our continuing quest to see what dishes we can use ground turkey instead of beef, we made turkey nachos last night.

SP cooked the turkey with cumin, cayenne, chili powder, salt, pepper, some minced onion and garlic and a little tomato paste. Then I added shredded pepper Jack and cheddar cheeses so they would melt with the beef. Since we didn't want the chips to get soggy, we made what amounted to a layered dip, with the beef and cheese mixture topped with diced tomato, scallions, minced red onion, sliced black olives, pickled jalapenos and a dollop of sour cream.

I love making my own chips because they taste so much fresher than the bagged variety:

I fried the chips in batches in vegetable oil and sprinkled them with salt when they came out of the oil. We had quite a few left over so I'll be interested to see if they're any good the next day.
Pin It!


  1. Yum! I make chips just like these! They are very good the next day...although I like mine warm.


  2. I heated them up in the toaster oven because I hate cold chips. :)

  3. Uh, did you use your fry daddy?

  4. D - I haven't used the fry daddy yet. *hangs head in shame* I never remember that we have it.
