Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 pound ground 90% lean turkey or beef
2 teaspoons Jo's Taco seasoning
1 cup (8-ounce can) Hunt's Tomato Sauce
6 ounces (one 8-ounce can red kidney beans -- rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups peeled and chopped fresh tomatoes

1 tablespoon shredded Kraft reduced-fat Cheddar cheese -- (2 1/4 ounces)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8-by-12-inch baking dish with olive-oil
flavored cooking spray. In a large skillet sprayed with olive oil flavored
cooking spray, brown meat (I added i/2 large onion, chopped, because we LOVE
onion). Stir in tomato sauce and Taco seasoning. Add beans and 1/2 cup tomatoes.
Mix well to combine. Lower heat and let simmer 6-8 minutes. Arrange nacho chips
in prepared baking dish. Spoon meat mixture evenly over chips. Spread sour cream
evenly over meat mixture. Top with green onion, remaining 1 cup tomatoes, and
then cheddar cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until bubbly and hot. Place dish
on a wire rack and let set 5 minutes. Divide into 6 servings. Freezes well.

HINT: Substitute any reputable brand for Jo's seasoning.
