1 can diced tomatos
1/2 cp of chicken broth
1 can refried beans
1 can black beans
1 small can of chopped olives
Shredded cheese

Brown the turkey in olive oil and butter then add ingredients to chicken broth.
Let simmer for 3 hours. After add 2 tsp of flour and mix to thicken.
shred chicken.
Layer pan with tortilla chips, cheese, chicken, refried beans and black beans and olives.
Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes and serve with a little sour cream on top or avocado too.

I noticed you had freezer meals, do you know if you can freeze breakfast casseroles (the one with cubed bread and eggs) We started a freezer meal group and I was not sure how it would turn out.
