Mexican Spinach Bake

A lowfat "enchilada" bake without tortillas.



  1. Brown turkey, onion and taco seasoning. Add enchilada sauce and simmer until thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Pre-heat oven at 350 °F (175 °C). Use non-stick spray to grease an 8 x 8" pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese, spinach, and egg together until creamy.
  4. In bottom of pan, spread half of the meat mixture until it covers it.
  5. Then spread the spinach mixture on top of the meat, making sure it reaches the edges.
  6. Sprinkle half of the cheese on top. Then add remaining meat mixture and sprinkle the rest of the cheese. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until set.

Made last night and loved it. Used what I had... salsa versus enchilada sauce and added more vegetables. I must try again & make as listed.

I forgot to add the step where the chiles go.. Just toss it in when you're simmering the meat and sauce together.
Absolutely fantastic! More filling than I thought it would be! Will absolutely make it again!

Awesome and easy (I did layer in s few corn tortillas)!

I liked it a lot and it was pretty simple/hard to screw up [and I am not a cook] -- in the future I'd probably add in some more peppers [jalapenos at least!] just because I love spice.

This is one of my new favorites. Feels like eating Lasagna and is creamy and flavorful. I will probably make even more for leftover lunches.

Great recipe!! I make this for myself and take it for lunch all week, just add lettuce and it's like a taco salad. Yummy!! I would make this for family get togethers and serve it with tortilla chips, it would make a great dip for a lot of people.
