Ingredients-
1 tub of Kite Hill Cream Cheese
1 cup of my homemade coconut yogurt
4 scoops of Quest Cinnamon Crunch Protein Powder

{Dairy Free Taco Bake}

{Dairy Free Taco Bake}


Hello lovely people. I like to prep a meal on Sunday and eat it all week long since I work an hour from home. This one is on repeat for this week and I am super excited. Most of the time leftovers start to not taste as good as the week goes on. I think this dish is going to be one that gets better after sitting in the fridge for a day or two. Here's how you can make it:

Ingredients:
1-2 lbs of lean ground turkey (or beef)
Taco Seasoning of choice** 
1 can of salsa of choice
1 tub of Tofutti Sour Cream
2 ish cups of my homemade refried beans
corn tortillas
1 yellow pepper, cut into strips
1 orange pepper, cut into strips
1 onion, cut into strips
cilantro
limes
avocado

**I make my own taco seasoning with a mixture of chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, onion powder, & garlic powder)

Directions:
1. Cook meat in a skillet over medium heat. Add taco seasoning of choice. Cook until the meat is cooked through. Next, drain meat. Add the can of salsa to the pan with the meat. Stir to combine. 
2. In another skillet, cook the peppers and onions with oil (my favorite is Primal Kitchen Extra Virgin Avocado Oil). Cook until tender. 
3. Line a greased 9 X 13 pan with corn tortilla. Next you will layer the casserole.
4. The first layer will be the taco meat. Spread this layer evenly on top of the tortillas.
5. The second layer is the pepper/onion mix. Spread this evenly on top of the meat. 
6. The third layer is the refried beans. Spread the beans evenly over the peppers and onions.
7. The next layer is the the sour cream. Spread this evenly.
8. Lastly, top the sour cream with more corn tortilla. 
9. Cover the pan with foil and place in the oven at 375. 
10. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until cooked through. 
11. For a few minutes, take the foil off the pan and broil to crisp up the top of the casserole. Make sure to keep an eye on the dish because the broil setting gets super hot!
12. Top the casserole with lime juice, cilantro and avocado!

Enjoy!

4. Turn on the bean/chili setting (mine was high pressure for 30 minutes). 
5. When the beans are finished cooking, let them sit for 20 minutes. 
6. Release the rest of the steam after that by turning the valve. 
7. Use a strainer to strain the beans from the liquid (make sure to reserve some of the liquid for blending).
8. Add the beans to a big bowl. Use an immersion blender to puree the beans. Add some of the reserved cooking liquid to make the desired consistency.
