How are everyone’s New Year’s resolutions going? We are well in to a week so far in the new year. Some of my resolutions include working out 4 times a week, eating healthier, eating more veggies. I’ll do really good eating healthy about 2 days in a row, then the 3rd day I give up and not eat really well. Then during that 3rd day, I’m thinking to myself, I wish I would have eaten better. Do any of you guys ever think that way? It’s a bad habit that needs to stop. I’m going to Hawaii in June and I want to look good in a swim suit.
Well enough about resolutions, here’s a recipe for ground turkey enchiladas. I took my famous beef enchilada recipe and substituted the ground beef for lean ground turkey. I even added in some veggies like onions and zucchini. I will throw the veggies into the food processor to make them real fine so it’s the size of ground beef. You won’t even taste the added zucchini in there because of that, I promise. Use mild or hot flavored enchilada sauce depending on spicy you like your food. Enjoy my healthier take on enchiladas!
