  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. Place 1/3 of the turkey mixture in 9-inch deep dish pie plate. Spread 1/3 of the rice mixture on top. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese, then top with 1 tortilla. Repeat layers ending with rice.

This is a wonderful, tasty quick recipe. It is nearly endlessly adaptable to whatever vegetables, meat and cheeses that you happen to have in you pantry. I used a springform pan that was the exact size of the tortillas and it worked great. I also used ground beef instead of turkey, tex-mex shredded cheese instead of just cheddar and leftover brown rice that I had in the fridge. Added some finely chopped jalapeno pepper as well. Yum!!

Okay. I did not like the broccoli flavored rice in it. That's all I could taste. I would put spanish rice next time.

I made this last night and it was wonderful!!! I substituted "Tostitos Restaurant Style Salsa Con Queso" on the inside layers, reserving the cheddar for the top, and WOW!!! I'm adding this to my regular rotation!

My kids loved this. It is a great way to sneak veggies in their diet, just chop small enough. They asked for the left overs in their lunch the next day. We will definately eat this again.

I ended up not having the right size tortillas, but the larger ones work well too. This was a great dish!
