Turkey Enchilada Casserole

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

Ingredients

Directions

  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.

Excellent dish. Easy to prepare. Loved by the entire family.
This was a great and simple recipe. I added a can of black beans and a 1/3 of the NF sour cream. Made enough for lunch for the next day.

I made this tonight and loved it but I did make some adjustments. Here are the ingredients that I used: * 1 small can tomatoes with chiles * 1 can black beans * 10 oz ground turkey breast * 4 tsp minced garlic * 1 1/2 cups enchilada sauce * 4.5 oz shredded monterrey jack cheese * 12 corn tortillas * 1 tsp cumin * 8 tsps ground oregano * 1 tsp olive oil * 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro * 1 large onion

It was pretty good. Might recommend a bit of salsa instead of some of the enchilada sauce. Also, there are lower calorie corn tortillas than recommeded in this recipe.

Delicious! Tastes so good you won`t believe its so low calorie. Made with whole wheat tortillas instead of corn. A little too much enchilada sauce for me, so may substitute half of it for something like salsa next time.

Very good! I used regular cheese, only 10 tortillas, and a regular pound package of turkey. When I figured the calories I came up with 310 per serving. The regular cheese made it taste rich and not like a lo-cal meal.
