Chili Cheese Enchiladas

I make a lot of chicken (which don't get me wrong, I do love) but these enchiladas were a nice change. They were also very simple to make and were so so good!

Chili Cheese Enchiladas
Adapted from Taste of Home
Makes 10 Enchiladas
1 Enchilada=3 WW PP
Cal 138, Fat 5.4g, Carbs 12.2, Fiber 2g Protein 10.2

12 oz lean ground turkey
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup picante sauce
1/4 cup water
1 cup enchilada sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup reduced fat mexican cheese blend, divided (I used Sargento)
10 white corn tortillas
Sour Cream, Tomatoes, Shredded Lettuce, Green Onion for toppings, optional

In a large ovenproof skillet, cook ground turkey and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the chili powder, cumin, garlic, water, and picante sauce. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Stir in 1/2 of your shredded cheese.

In a 13x9 baking dish arrange the tortillas and evenly spoon in your filling. Roll and place seam side down. Top with remaining cheese and enchilada sauce.

Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Enjoy!


  1. I love enchiladas, but I hate the mess. I can make a mess in my kitchen for almost anything except a glass of tea. But these sound good and pretty simple to make. I would heat the tortillas in the micorwave and keep them warm so they don't crack while folding. Works better for me.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. I featured these at my Weekly Rays of Sunshine: http://www.tumbleweedcontessa.com/blog/weekly-rays-of-sunshine-18/

  2. That is a good idea. I occasionally have the corn tortillas crack and it's a pain.
