Ground turkey taco lasagna seasoned to perfection, and made easily!
I am currently having a lasagna moment! I love all things lasagna right about now. If you remember correctly, I just made the seafood lasagna a few weeks ago. AND I’m sure no one could forget about my Philly Cheesesteak lasagna right? Well guess what? I’m back with another winner, and this time it’s a ground turkey recipe (everyone jump up for joy!)! That’s right y’all, I made the most delicious ground turkey taco lasagna recently, and my family went crazy. They LOVED IT! I had gotten so many request, that I decided to share the recipe with you! So time to get comfortable, and check out how I make this amazing taco lasagna!
So first things first.. YES!! I really made this recipe with ground turkey! If you’re a die hard ground beef fan, it can be used, but seriously ground turkey is amazing in this recipe. It’s not too greasy, and I add nice amount of vegetable oil for flavor, AND to keep it from getting dry (because we all know that ground turkey can get dry).
The ground turkey is cooked until done, and seasoned with taco seasoning. I also toss in some red onions, canned tomatoes (if you like it spicy you can add Rotel instead!) garlic, and yummy cilantro.
You already know that my turkey lasagan is loaded with cheese as well. I like to use a combination of Sargentos 6 Cheese Italian Blend, and Sharp Cheddar cheese for this easy ground turkey taco lasagna recipe!
