What's for Dinner? Turkey Enchilada Casserole

Mondays are usually Mexican food night around here, and this is what's on the menu for dinner tonight.

Turkey Enchilada Casserole
(Adapted for my family from a Sunset recipe)

1 lb ground turkey
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 T. minced garlic
1 T. dried oregano
1 T. taco seasoning
1 29 ounce can red enchilada sauce
12 corn tortillas (6 inch diameter)
2 cups fat free shredded cheese
1 green onion, chopped

Brown the ground turkey in a frying pan with the garlic, onion, and bell pepper. Add the beans, oregano, taco seasoning and 1 cup of the enchilada sauce. Dip 3 of the tortillas in the remaining enchilada sauce and then arrange in the bottom of a casserole dish (cut to fit as needed). Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese over the tortillas. Layer one third of the turkey-bean mixture over the cheese and tortillas. Repeat these layers two more times. Top with another layer of tortillas dipped in the enchilada sauce and cheese. Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Garnish with chopped green onion.
