Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 minutes

  • ½ cup frozen corn
  • ½ cup Original Rotel tomatoes
  • ½ cup black olives
  • Half package taco seasonings
  • 1 cup shredded Colby jack cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a pan, combine wild turkey, salt, pepper, ¼ cup of water and cook until water is evaporated, breaking up ground turkey into small pieces.
