While that is cooking, be sure you start your cornbread mix as you’ll need it later.
Next, add your kidney beans, black beans, salsa, corn, and chili seasoning to your ground turkey.
After all of that is cooked, transfer it into a nine-by-nine pan and pour your cornbread mix on top.
Then place it in the oven at 450 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
Grocery shopping tips
While food prices continue to rise, there are some tricks that may save you serious cash.
Other retailers like Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Aldi, or Costco tend to offer their brand along with other, more expensive name brands.
The store’s brands are typically cheaper and nearly identical in taste so it could be worth a try.
Coupons.com is also a great source for savings.
The site has digital and printable coupons offering discounts on everything from food to cleaning supplies to personal care items.
While the platform offers coupons in almost every shopping category, you can set the filters to only show food deals.
Additionally, look into something called unmarked clearance or hidden clearance at Walmart.
These are when items are priced incorrectly.
Because Walmart and some other stores are understaffed and have tons of items, changing price tags might not be a top priority.
Try scanning mispriced items with the Walmart app and employees will give you the lower price at the register.
