Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish and set to the side. Add 2 Tbsp of olive oil to a large pot, and cook ground turkey with green chiles, yellow onion, bell pepper, and taco seasoning packet until ground turkey is brown and crumbly.
Season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Stir in tortilla pieces with cream of mushroom soup, black olives, 3/4 can of the diced tomatoes, enchilada sauce, and 1 1/2 cups of the shredded cheese and mix to combine all of the ingredients. Transfer to casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes.

Tips & Tricks For extra flavoring, add 2 more stalks of green onion. If you want a more ‘saucy’ casserole, add a half can or more of enchilada sauce. You can substitute the meat with ground beef or shredded chicken instead of ground turkey.
