Why I Love This Recipe

My mom found this recipe in Sunset Magazine October 2006, as I ALWAYS have ground turkey around and am looking for new ways to use it.

Ingredients You'll Need

1.5 lbs ground turkey breast
0.5 cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp minced fresh oregano or 1 Tbsp dried
0.5 Tsp ground cumin
1 Tsp canola oil
1 can (29oz)red enchilada sauce
12 corn tortillas (6 in wide)
2 cups shredded reduced fat jack or mexi-blend cheese
Chopped fresh cilantro


In a pan over high heat, stir turkey, onion, garlic, oregano, and cumin in oil until turkey is crumbly and no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Stir in 1 cup enchilada sauce.

Add salt to taste.

Meanwhile, cut tortillas in half. Arrange a fourth of the halves (6) evenly over the bottom of a shallow 3-quart casserole, overlapping to fit.

Sprinkle a fourth of the cheese evenly over the tortillas, then top with a third of the turkey mixture and a fourthe of the remaining enchilada sauce, spreading each level.

Repeat to make two more layers of tortillas, cheese, turkey mixture, and sauce; top with another layer of tortillas and sauce, then cheese.

Bake at 425 degrees until cheese is melted and casserole is hot in the center, 18-20 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro

Prep and cook time: About 45 minutes

Notes: If desired, serve w/ reduced-fat sour cream (I highly recommend this)

Makes: 8-10 servings
