Chili lasagna combines the zesty flavors of chili along with the cheesy layered kid-favorite lasagna. Developed with the busy mom in mind, this recipe uses oven-ready noodles, canned chili beans for extra flavor, along with peppers and tomatoes to sneak in extra veggies without the kids realizing it. A great way to use leftover chili!
Saute onion and peppers then cook the ground turkey. Add a drizzle of olive oil to the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and peppers and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and the ground turkey. Cook until turkey is no longer pink.
Season the sour cream. While the turkey is cooking, place the sour cream into a medium-sized bowl. Stir in one packet of chili seasoning. Set aside.
Add the chili beans, tomatoes, and seasoning. To the ground turkey, add the chili beans, tomatoes, and the remaining packet of chili seasoning.
Assemble Add 1/3 of the meat mixture to the bottom of the baking pan. Add a layer of lasagna noodles (I used 5 per layer). Next add 1/2 of the sour cream mixture. Top with another layer of meat, noodles, and sour cream. Top the sour cream with the remaining meat then add the cheese. Cover with tin foil.
Bake. Bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to brown. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, then serve.
