Cheesy Turkey Enchiladas

Enchiladas are classic comfort food. Who doesn't love them? This Rocco recipe comes in at around 300 calories, while normal enchiladas are around 1000 calories. That's why it's comfort food. :)

The recipe calls for pre-made black bean dip. I looked both at Whole Foods and Market Basket and I couldn't find anything. So, I looked up a black bean dip recipe, and made my own. I simply used one can of black beans, garlic powder, cumin, coriander, onion powder, and some fresh lemon juice. I also threw in some low fat sour cream. All of this was food processed.

So, after the bean dip was done, I grilled up the turkey meat. Once that was done, I poured the dip in to the turkey and cooked that for a bit. I then build the enchiladas, put them in the oven, and in 12 minutes, they were done.

One tweak that I made besides the bean dip was that I used fresh salsa that I bought in the produce section, instead of the jarred salsa Rocco called for. I'm not sure I can ever buy jarred salsa, now that I know stores sell fresh salsa.

Anyway, my wife's reaction was "Wow!". Enough said, this recipe is a keeper.
