    Default Thanksgiving Nachos

    If there is leftover turkey after Thanksgiving and no plans for its use, put it in some nachos. This dish is also a great way to start out the holiday season.

    1 1/2 pounds ground turkey, preferably 85/15
    1 medium yellow onion, diced
    2 tablespoons ground cumin
    1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 12 oz can beer
    1 15 oz can nibblet corn, drained
    1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 12 oz to 14 oz bag tortilla chips
    1 16 oz jar mango or peach salsa
    1/2 cup sliced pickled jalapeno peppers
    2 8 oz packages colby jack cheese
    1/2 cup sour cream

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown turkey with onion in a 10 inch frying pan, over medium high heat. Add next 5 ingredients and stir to combine. Add 1/2 of 12 oz beer, and let it evaporate over medium heat. Pour remaining 1/2 beer and let it evaporate as well and remove meat mixture from heat. In small mixing bowl, combine drained and rinsed black beans and corn. On 15 inch oven proof baking platter, place 1/3 of tortilla chips on bottom of platter, then layer 1/3 each of the ground turkey, bean and corn mixture, salsa and colby jack cheese, repeating layers. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with jalapeno peppers and dollop sour cream.

    Notes: Chicken broth can be substituted for the beer.

    Number of Servings: 10 appetizer servings
