What’s cookin’ Monday

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:

Mexican Lasagna!
Made with Turkey, a little bit Healthier spin on it!


 1 lb Ground Turkey
Chopped fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)
Cooking spray
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

 Whalla!! I'll try to post a picture before we dig in! Please if you try, tell me what you think!!


  1. That sounds yummy! I am so going to try this recipe this week.

  2. I also put guach and some yummy mango salsa with it. It was GOOD!!!!

  3. So I tried it tonight! I used green chili enchalada sauce instead of red sauce (I love the green chili sauce!). I loved it, my oldest ate it but claimed it wasn't his favorite (but he is also sick) my youngest son would not touch it! LOL Doesn't really surprise me since he doesn't like anything that is good for him.

This little man is my baby in training. He gave me the greatest honor of changing my life and title forever. He made me Mom. He made me important.

It has been a short four years that have blurred past of sword fights, super heroes and laughs.

Johnpaul is a Big Brother ask any one he doesn't take his title lightly.

One of my most favorite of many amazing attributes of Johnpaul is his idea of Honor Love and Family. He is a awesome little boy. I look forward in watching him grow.

This guy was worry from within the whom. At week 15 I started to bleed. We were loosing him. It was that day this sweet one even before breathing air taught me one of my most precious life lessons.. patience.

Before I had little but while pregnant with him I was on strict bed rest for 172 days. I was more than worth it.

My image of him was he was the most Determined person.. boy was I right. He will because of this be anything he wants. Greatness is in his future.

Nathaniel is loving, sweet and considerate. He can melt your worst day with his smile.

This little love. He's my last but in no where my least. He was not planned but was very welcome. He was an Anniversary Gift the best kind ever. Christian doesn't talk yet or walk but I can already tell he's a big thinker.

He is always watching. I can't wait to see how his personality unfolds... but at the same time hope he takes his sweet time. He is my baby, my last and I'd like to keep him sdmall for a bit ;o)
