Number of Servings: 10


    1 lb ground trukey (93% lean)
    1 small onion chopped
    1 clove of garlic pressed
    1 6oz can tomato paste
    3/4 c water
    1 c cooked brown rice
    3 c reduced fat cheddar cheese or mexican blend
    1 1/2 tsp oregano
    1 tsp garlic salt
    1 tbsp chili powder
    pinch of red pepper (optional)
    10 - 12 flour tortillas (low carb, heart healthy)
    8 oz salsa
    1 can enchilada sauce


Cook ground turkey with onion & garlic until no longer pink. Add tomato paste, water, cooked rice, 2 c cheese, salsa and seasonings. Stir to mix well. Cook over low heat until thickens. Meanwhile, spread 1/4 cup enchilada sauce in bottom of 13 x 9 pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Spread 1/2 cup meat mixture onto tortilla and roll. Place enchiladas seam side down into pan. Pour remaining sauce over enchiladas and top with 1 c cheese. Bake at 350 for 10- 20 min. Makes 10- 12 enchiladas.
We like to top them with lettuce, tomato, green onions and cilantro for an authentic look and taste. Also a tbsp of low fat sour cream and extra salsa if you like.

    Very Good
    I had errands to run yesterday so I left my boyfriend with the recipe and everything laid out for him. He complained that it took to long, and it was turkey NOT beef... BUT when all was said and done, he was surprised that he REALLY liked them!As he didn't think he would! Will def make again! - 1/27/09
