This easy taco casserole is made healthier with the use of ground turkey, instead of the usual ground beef. However, I would make a few changes to this recipe according to my preferences. I would chop the garlic, and use mild picante sauce or mild salsa as a substitute for the taco sauce. I would also use lite sour cream, lite cottage cheese, and reduced fat cheddar cheese.
