Turkey Enchilada Lasagna

This is a Taste of Home recipe that was brought to one of our freezer exchanges. It was really yummy and eaten way too fast to take a picture of it! I'm always a fan of incorporating healthier meats, like turkey, into our everyday meals. Enjoy!

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 package (8 ounces) fat-free cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 can (10 ounces) enchilada sauce
  • 6 whole wheat flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
  • Salsa and sour cream, optional
In a large skillet, cook the turkey, onion and peppers over medium
heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in cream cheese and
chili powder.

Pour enchilada sauce in a shallow bowl. Dip tortillas in sauce to
coat. Place two tortillas in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated
with cooking spray; spread with half of the turkey mixture. Sprinkle
with 1/3 cup cheese. Repeat layers. Top with remaining tortillas and

Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until heated
through and cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before
serving. Serve with salsa and sour cream if desired. Yield: 8
