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!
Healthy Baked Turkey Enchiladas
- 1 1/2 pounds of Jennie- 0 Lean ground turkey breast or fat-free turkey breast
- 1/2 a small onion, diced
- 1 small zucchini, diced into fine pieces
- 1 cup of tomato sauce (optional)
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 2 cans of enchilada sauce (hot or mild)
- 10 6 in flour tortillas
- 8 oz of low-fat Mexican cheese blend
- Cooking spray
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Brown ground turkey in a pan until it’s no longer pink. Drain any extra fat. Add in zucchini, onion, garlic and cook for 5 minutes. If you don’t like to cut your vegetables feel free to add them to a food processor and have that do it for you. In the recipe video I cook the onions and zucchini first and then ADD in the turkey. You can do it either way.
- In a bowl add in enchilada sauce and 1 cup of tomato sauce. Tomato sauce is optional (I normally don’t add the tomato sauce). Add half of the sauce into the pan and reserve the rest of the sauce for the top of the enchiladas.
- Place about 1/2 cup of turkey mixture onto a flour tortilla and roll up like a burrito and lay seam side down in a 9 X 13 baking dish. When all flour tortillas are done spray with cooking spray. If there are any extra turkey and vegetable mixture you can add that to the top of the enchiladas. Sprinkle with cheese on top.
- Cook enchiladas for 20 – 25 minutes. Take out of the oven. Serve with some salsa or sour cream.
