Gluten Free Mexican Macaroni and Cheese

Hungry? Don't have a lot of time? This meal takes only two pots/pans, so its easy clean up and a quick, hearty meal!

Here's what you'll need!

1 pound ground turkey
2 cups cooked pasta (gluten free or not!)
2 packages monterey jack cheese
1/2 cup light cream cheese
2 cans green chili
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 can of black beans
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic
2 cups tomatillo sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
fresh cilantro

First, bring one pot of water to boil for your pasta. In a separate pan, cook your chopped onion, garlic, and ground turkey in olive oil until brown, then rinse your black beans...

Add the black beans, green chili, cumin, chili powder and fire roasted tomatoes to your pan...

Cover, reduce heat to low, and let simmer for 15 minutes, or until your pasta has finished cooking!

Combine the mixture in your pan with your cooked pasta, 1 package of cheese, 1/2 cream cheese and one cup of tomatillo sauce...

Transfer after mixing together to your pan...cover with additional cup of tomatillo sauce, cheese, and cilantro...

Bake for 35 minutes at 375 degrees, or until cheese is brown and bubbly!

Enjoy! :)
