This is one of my favorite ways to have Mexican food while keeping it healthy and delicious!
Healthy High Protein Enchiladas:
- 1lb ground turkey
- 1 packet taco seasoning
- 16oz ricatta cheese
- 1: 15oz can diced tomatoes and chilies (drained)
- 1 cup shredded cheese (Mexican blend, cheddar, any type you like)
- Frontera Enchilada sauce (2 packs)
- 6: 8-10 inch soft tortilla (look for 130 calories per tortilla or less, if possible)
Pre-heat oven to 350*F, spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with non-stick spray.
Brown the ground turkey in a pan and then add taco seasonings (follow directions on taco seasoning packet). In a large bowl, mix ricotta cheese with tomatoes and chilies, then mix in 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese. Pour enough enchilada sauce to cover the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish. Scoop even amounts of ground turkey and ricotta cheese mixture into a tortilla. Roll tortilla and place it in the pan “seem-side” down. Repeat 5 more times. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce over the rolled & filled tortillas. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of shredded cheese on top. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
Serve with a side of sliced and sautéed bell pepper and onions.
*These enchiladas are also awesome reheated the next day as leftovers!
