Low Calorie Turkey Enchiladas
Here I am, Susie Homemaker, slaving away in the kitchen everyday as soon as I leave the kids belts factory. I’m chopping, mincing, dicing, slicing feverishly to prepare a fancy 5 course gourmet meal for my loving family…. Yea right! Who has time for that? I certainly don’t and I’m pretty sure you don’t either and you know what? That’s ok! I hate spending time on stuff I have to do, when I really want to be playing with my kids and spending time with my hubby. Eating, unfortunately, is sort of a necessity, so I have to prepare something (housework… not so much. I saw a sign that said “Please excuse the mess, my kids are making memories” and I think those are words to live by!).
As I mentioned in an earlier recipe post, my assistant has been sharing healthy (low cal, low fat, whatever) recipes with me. This one sounds really good , although I haven’t tried it, yet. Jen swears it was amazing and she is a self proclaimed Master Chef so I guess I should listen to her. She says it comes together pretty quickly, too.
Anyway, if you are like me, you love Mexican, but you know how horrible it can be for your waist-line. Well, here is a healthy take on enchiladas. It makes 4 huge servings and is less than 400 calories each.
4 Cups Stewed Tomatoes
½ Cup Chopped Onions
1 Can Ro-Tel - Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies (if you aren’t a fan of heat, skip these)
1 Cup Frozen Spinach
8 oz Lean Ground Turkey
4 Ole High Fiber Low Carb Tortillas
2 Oz Cabot - Cheddar Cheese 50% Reduced Fat
1 tbsp Argo - Cornstarch
2 tsp Chili powder
Jen adds a little guacamole to hers and serves it with a side of veggies, you could also top it with some shredded lettuce and a few chopped raw onions, tomatoes and cilantro.
This sounds really good and I can’t wait to try it out. Let me know what you think!
