On to our second week and I feel like Mexican food tonight! Mexican cuisine is by far one of my favorite. Mmmmm I love it.
So tonight on the menu is:
Made with Turkey, a little bit Healthier spin on it!
1 lb Ground TurkeyChopped fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)
1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can (4 ounces) mild chopped green chilies
½ cup red bell pepper chopped
1 can black beans- drained
1 sm can yellow corn or ½ cup frozen corn
Salt and ground pepper to taste
1 can (14 ounces) enchilada sauce
12 (6 inch) corn tortillas
1 package (8 ounces) shredded Mexican cheeses
Sour cream for garnish (optional but recommended)
1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Lightly coat with cooking spray a 9x9-inch baking dish; set aside.
2. In a large nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat, heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil. Add ground turkey, onion, green chilies, red peppers, salt and pepper. Sauté about 10 minutes, until meat is no longer pink and the onions and peppers are tender. Then add in the black beans and corn stirring in well.
3. Spoon a thin layer of enchilada sauce in the bottom of pan. Add a layer of 4 overlapping tortillas. Spoon one third of meat mixture over tortillas. Drizzle with enchilada sauce and sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese. Continue to layer in this manner until all ingredients are used, ending with a layer of cheese. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until hot and bubbly. Cut into squares.
4. If desired, top each serving with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of cilantro. Serves 6
