Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    20 oz ground turkey
    1 tsp granulated garlic powder
    4 tsp Taco Seasoning mix
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    1 block cream cheese
    1 tbsp chopped cilantro
    1 cup monterey jack or chihuahua cheese, shredded
    1 dozen corn tortillas
    1 12 oz can Low Sodium V-8 tomato/vegetable juice
    1/2 cup enchilada sauce
    Salt, Pepper to taste

Tips

Serve with sour cream, shredded ice berg and or shredded cheese, if desired.

You can substitute cooked chicken (or rotisserie chicken) or beef if you wish.


Directions

Brown ground turkey in a nonstick skillet. During cooking (after 5 minutes) sprinkle garlic powder and continue stirring. After browned and when you hear "popping" as fond develops, add taco seasoning mix and stir. (You may add a 1/4 c water if you wish, but it's not necessary.) Set turkey aside and allow to cool.

Place cream cheese in 1 qt glass (microwave safe) bowl and heat in microwave for 30 seconds to soften. Stir until smooth and add cilantro. Combine. Add shredded cheese and set aside.

Combine V-8 and enchilada sauce in pie plate or other low-sided dish large enough to fit the diameter of a corn tortilla.

Use a Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker (or microwave-safe 3-4 quart casserole) to cook the meal.

Put 1/2 cup V-8/sauce mixture in bottom of Baker and gently shake container to cover the bottom. One at a time, place corn tortillas in the V-8/sauce mixture and place 4 coated tortillas in the bottom of the baker, overlapping if necessary.

Using a small scoop or teaspoon, place dollops of cheese mixture across tortilla layer, using 1/3 of mixture. Sprinkle 1/3 off chopped onion and cooked turkey on top of cheese mix. Repeat tortilla-cheese-onion-turkey layers 2 more times. Pour remaining sauce on top. Cover with baker lid and microwave for 11 minutes. Allow to "set" for 5 minutes (with lid on).

Garnish with additional cilantro, if desired.
