Extra-lean ground turkey breast is a delicious alternative to ground beef in this family-pleasing enchilada casserole.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb extra-lean (at least 99%) ground turkey breast
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles, undrained
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic-pepper blend
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (3 oz)
  • 1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso™ enchilada sauce
  • 8 flour tortillas (8 inch)
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped

Directions

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350° F. Spray 13 x 9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook turkey and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until turkey is no longer pink.

    Stir in spinach; cook, stirring frequently, until thawed. Stir in green chiles, cumin, garlic-pepper blend, sour cream and 1/4 cup of the cheese.
  • 3
    Spread about 1 teaspoon enchilada sauce on each tortilla. Top each with about 1/2 cup turkey mixture. Roll up tortillas; place seam sides down in baking dish. In small bowl, mix remaining enchilada sauce and the tomato; spoon over enchiladas. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.

    Spray sheet of foil with cooking spray; cover baking dish with foil, sprayed side down. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Expert Tips

  • Regular ground turkey can contain as much fat and saturated fat as ground beef, so be sure to use extra lean (99% fat free) ground turkey breast.
  • Garlic-pepper blend can be purchased in the spice section of the grocery store. It's a mixture of garlic powder, ground pepper and other seasonings. If not available, use 1/4 teaspoon pepper and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder instead.
