Turkey Enchilada Casserole

Sensational layered tortillas and ground turkey with enchilada sauce and reduced fat cheese.



  1. In a 5 to 6-quart pan over high heat, stir turkey, onion, garlic, oregano, and cumin in oil until turkey is crumbly and no longer pink, about 4 minutes.
  2. Stir in 1 cup enchilada sauce. Add salt to taste.
  3. Meanwhile, cut tortillas in half. Arrange a fourth of the halves evenly over the bottom of a shallow 3-quart casserole, overlapping to fit.
  4. Sprinkle a 1/4 of the cheese evenly over the tortillas, then top with 1/3 of the turkey mixture and a 1/4 of the remaining enchilada sauce, spreading each level.
  5. Repeat to make two more layers of tortillas, cheese, turkey mixture, and sauce; top with another layer of tortillas and sauce, then cheese.
  6. Bake in a 425° F (210° C) regular or convection oven until cheese is melted and casserole is hot in the center, 18 to 20 minutes.
  7. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro.

We cut the oregano down some, but this is very good and filling. Goes great with a little salsa :)

Very filling, quick to make, flavorful and plenty of leftovers. I have it with habenero salsa and some fresh fruit on the side.

Fixed this last night it was delicious. I added a can of black beans and used less enchilada sauce. Everyone in my family LOVED this recipe.

This was pretty good. I also used less enchilada sauce and added 1/3 cup NF yogurt to make it creamy. Light or NF sour cream would be good if you have it on hand. Thanks for this one. We enjoyed it.

The family loved it but I did add sour cream to the sauce. We made a double batch for seven people and had PLENTY left over.
