This dish is a great way to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving or Christmas. This hearty Mexican-style casserole is chock-full of popular south-of-the-border ingredients including corn chips, salsa, Monterey Jack cheese and refried beans. It's a guaranteed family-pleaser.—Trudie Hagen, Roggen, Colorado

  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 1 green onion, sliced
