serves 6

    For Chipotle and Adobo Bchamel: 
    3 tablespoons butter
    3 tablespoons flour
    2 cups milk
    3 tablespoons pured chipotle and adobo sauce

    1 1/2 pound ground turkey
    1 tablespoon cumin
    1 tablespoon coriander
    1 large yellow onion, approximately 2 cups
    1 16-ounce bag frozen corn
    1 11.5-ounce jar pickled jalapeos, 3/4 cup, cut into small dice
    1 8-ounce jar tomatillo salsa
    2 cups Monterey Jack cheese
    1 1/2 cups (an 8-ounce block) queso fresco
    1 large bag tortilla chips, thicker cut preferred
    1 handful cilantro, minced, for garnish
    Juice of 1/2 lime
    Sour cream, for serving
For the bchamel, melt the butter in a saucepot over medium-high heat. Add flour, let it cook for a minute or so and then whisk in the milk. Let thicken to coat the back of a spoon, stirring constantly to prevent scorching. Add chipotle and adobo and stir to combine.

In a large saut pan, brown the ground turkey with the cumin and coriander. Season with salt and pepper. Remove to a plate. In the same saut pan, saut onions until translucent, around 4 minutes. Add browned meat back into the onions along with corn, pickled jalapeos and tomatillo salsa; stir to combine. 

Place 1/4 of the chips on the bottom of the slow cooker and top with 1/4 of the cheese. Top with 1/3 of the meat, then 1/4 of the bchamel. Repeat two more times, ending with the chips. Top with the cheese. Cook on slow for four hours. 

To serve, top with cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice. Serve with sour cream at the table.
