Queso for dinner

This recipe was given from my Dad in 2002. He was around for the holidays and was making us dinner. I stole his recipe and changed the meat to ground turkey to see if we could lighten it up a bit. It's still a little heavy so you could call it dinner. I also made some chips from an over abundant tortilla supply. I enjoyed it and thought it was yummy, my husband didn't care for it, but here you go.

I started with a skillet and some canola oil, about a 1 1/2 cups or so. Warmed over medium- medium high heat. I had normal size tortillas and I cut them in 8 pieces. Lightly fried then put in the oven for a little longer to brown and to bake off leftover oil then sprinkled some salt over them.

For the dip, I browned 1 lb of ground turkey. When it's cooked through I added 1can of black beans, 1 can of rotel, and 1 lb of velveeta cheese I had cubed to help it melt faster. Let it melt stirring as you go.

I plated it like nachos. And served. Enjoy!
