  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large skillet, melt the butter and saute the diced onions and orange bell pepper until onions are translucent, stirring frequently.
  • Line a large baking sheet, preferably one with a lipped edge, with aluminum foil and spread the Tortilla Chips out over the surface of it.
  • Use your hands to break up pieces of the stuffing and sprinkle over the chips.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the turkey, red cayenne pepper, chili powder, and garlic powder and mix until turkey is evenly coated with seasonings, then sprinkle over the chips.
  • Use a spoon to add the cranberry sauce over the chips, make sure to stir the cranberry sauce first so it can be spread easier.
