Start out by spraying a large pan with non-stick cooking spray, and adding in the ground turkey. Cook the turkey over medium heat, breaking again any big chunks that form. Once the turkey is fully cooked and no longer pink, add in the packet of taco seasoning and mix thoroughly.

This next part’s my favorite…just dump in the garlic, diced tomatoes, salsa, corn and black beans. Mix everything together and let cook on medium/low heat for about 10 minutes.

Once the corn and black beans are warm throughout, the dish is ready! Sprinkle Mexican cheese on top and either serve immediately, or store in the fridge up to 5 days.
