Let's Make It
1
Preheat oven to 375°F and spray a 9-x-9” baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
2
In a high-sided sauté pan over medium high heat, heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Add ground turkey, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. Cook until no longer pink, about 5 min. Stir in taco seasoning mix; cook 1 min. Using a slotted spoon, remove ground turkey to a plate.
3
Seed and finely chop 1 jalapeño. In the same pan, add remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil, chopped jalapeño, onion and orange pepper. Season with black pepper and cook about 3 to 4 min. Add in black beans and roasted tomatoes and stir until combined. Stir in ground turkey. Check seasoning and remove from heat.
4
In a microwave-safe bowl, add VELVEETA and microwave on HIGH for 1 min. Remove from microwave and stir in salsa. Set aside until ready to build.
5
In the baking dish, add 4 tortillas. Next, add ½ of the turkey mixture and drizzle with ½ of the salsa mix. Add another layer of 4 tortillas, the remaining turkey mixture, and rest of the salsa and bake for 25 min.
6
Thinly slice remaining jalapeño. Remove taco bake from oven and top with jalapeño, cilantro, avocados, and sour cream. Serve with lime wedges.

Tip 2
How to Chop Onions
Cut off the stem end and remove skin from onion. Cut in half through the root end; place halves, cut sides down, on cutting board. Working one half at a time, make three to four horizontal cuts parallel to the cutting board, starting at the stem end and stopping each time before cutting through the root. Continue by making equally spaced vertical cuts perpendicular to the root, again, not cutting through the root. Turn the onion 90 degrees and finish by making cuts perpendicular to the last set of cuts, resulting in perfectly chopped onions. For more information, check out this video.
