For Mexican girls night dinner, I decided to take the plunge and make enchiladas. I was never really a fan of enchiladas growing up. I think the red sauce always creeped me out. This was my first attempt at enchiladas and they turned out awesome! I took a few steps to make these on the healthier side but still plenty on delicious.
Whole Wheat Tortillas
Valentina Hot Sauce
Chop up about half a red onion, 2 cloves of garlic and a small jalapeno.
In a pan, saute ground turkey, onion, garlic, jalapeno and a few shakes of cumin and chili powder.
Chop up about 2-3 cups of fresh spinach and half a bushel of cilantro.
Now spray the pan with non-stick spray and coat the bottom with Valentina Hot Sauce.
In a whole wheat tortilla, combine sautéed turkey and veggies with chopped spinach and cilantro. Sprinkle with cheese and roll up like a burrito.
Do this until you’ve made as many enchiladas as you want. Placing them side by side in a baking pan.
Now cover enchiladas with Valentina sauce and grated cheese.
Cook in oven on 200 degrees for 10-15min or until cheese is bubbling.
Serve them up hot! My enchiladas aren’t particularly heavy on the sauce, so a lot of the girls topped theirs with extra salsa, pico or guacamole which was delish and another healthy option.
I made these over the weekend and used corn tortillas. I learned that is a no-no! Stick with wheat tortillas. Yours look so much better than mine!
Yes, I heard if the tortillas are too think they might fall apart. I bet they still tasted delicious though! Glad you tried them!
