Ground turkey cooking
Meat browning in a skillet

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees, then grab a fry pan or skillet and start browning the ground turkey. I love using my Lodge Cast Iron skillet for meals like this. The pre-seasoned iron adds a little extra flavor when cooking the meat.

Seasoning added to browned meat

Once the meat is browned, go ahead and add your seasoning and mix in.

Blue corn tortillas on a baking sheet

Once the oven is preheated, grab a large baking sheet and layer the blue corn tortillas on them. Feel free to put some parchment paper down beforehand (for easier cleanup).

Now, start layering! Add some shredded cheese on top of the tortillas and then a layer of meat.

Layering ground turkey nachos

Repeat the layering one more time finishing with a meat layer and throw them in the oven for about 10 minutes until the cheese is melted.
