Fantastic Taco Casserole
1 lb lean ground beef or ground turkey
1 (1 1/4 ounce) packages taco seasoning
1 (15 ounce) cans refried beans

Brown ground beef and drain.

Pour beans over corn chips in dish.
Add beef to top of beans.
Sprinkle remaining cheese over top.
Sprinkle green onions over cheese.
Bake in a 375 degree oven until the cheese is nicely melted.
