My sister, Jen, gets credit for this recipe. Craving a simple and easy Mexican dish, this dip was the solution. It works well as a an appetizer but also pretty tasty as a main meal. There are numerous variations and substitutions that can be made, but this is my favorite version.

How hard was this for Rachel to make? Easy!
|(Cheese not pictured. Whoops)|
1 lbs ground turkey
1 pkg taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
1 can refried beans
1/2 medium yellow onion
1 jar salsa (I prefer mild)
1 pkg mexican cheese (cheddar is a good substitute)
1 container light sour cream
Chips for dunking
Note: olives can also be added
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
While oven is heating, brown ground turkey. Drain. Place pan back on stove and add 2/3 cup water and taco seasoning. Mix thoroughly. Once seasoning is mixed in, let meat simmer for 7-10 minutes. While simmering, add in refried beans. Thoroughly mix meat and beans together.
Spray an 11 x 7 pan with pam, then spread meat/bean mix on the bottom. Cover the meat with sour cream, then salsa, onion and cheese. Bake for 45 minutes. Serve with chips.
