Happy Memorial Day, loves!  We’ve been having another low-key day hanging around the apartment.  Wayne has been packing and preparing to leave me go on another business trip.  His flight leaves at 7:05 AM tomorrow, and he doesn’t get back till Sunday evening!  Booo.  On the bright side, I have a lot of fun dinners planned for myself.  They are all vegetarian except the day I’m having salmon.  Anywho, tonight I whipped up some enchiladas per Wayne’s request.  Recipe is approximate!

Turkey Enchiladas

  • 10 ounces extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup black beans
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced small
  • 1/3 large onion, diced small
  • 1 Tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 small, wheat, low-carb tortillas
  • light sour cream, cilantro, taco sauce, black olives for topping, if desired
  1. Saute the peppers, onion, and turkey until meat is cooked through.  Stir in the taco seasoning, about 1/4 cup of the enchilada sauce, and a splash of water. 
  2. Roll approx. 1/4 cup of meat mixture and a sprinkle of cheese into each tortilla.  Line up each enchilada, seam side down, in a pan coated with cooking spray.
  3. Top with any leftover meat mixture and the remaining enchilada sauce and cheese.
  4. Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes or until heated through and bubbly.
