Fantastic Foodie FridayRocco DiSpirito’s Cheesy Turkey Enchiladas With Tomatillo Salsa & Cilantro~

This fatigue-fighting meal from Chef Rocco DiSpirito will give you a sustained boost of energy from the protein and the spicy salsa.  This meal blends the Mexican flavors of healthy foods like bright-tasting tomatillos and cilantro in a delicious meal.


Serves 4
12 oz ground turkey breast
4 (9-in) low-carb tortillas
2/3 cup fat-free spicy black bean dip
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 (12-oz) jar tomatillo salsa
1 cup reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and cook, stirring to break it up a little, until it is just cooked through, about 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, using flameproof tongs, char the tortillas lightly on each side over an open flame, or toast them under a preheated broiler. Keep the tortillas warm by covering them with a clean kitchen towel as you go.

Stir the black bean dip into the turkey. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Lay the tortillas on a work surface, and divide the turkey mixture among them. Fold the sides of the tortillas in over the filling and roll the tortillas up tightly to encase the filling. Lay them side-by-side in a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Spoon the salsa over the tortillas, and sprinkle with the cheese. Bake until the cheese is bubbly and the enchiladas are hot throughout, 10 to 12 minutes.
Sprinkle the cilantro over the enchiladas, and serve.
