Healthified Mexican:)

It has been a while since I posted some of our healthy eating recipes, so it is time to get back to it.  Over the weekend I made some healthy enchiladas, black bean salsa, and brown rice... which are the perfect substitute to some of the fatty and salty Mexican food that we love!

Healthy Turkey Enchiladas
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey breast
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • corn tortillas
  • 1 can of red enchilada sauce
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheese
  • Prehead oven to 375 degrees. 
  • Brown the ground turkeyOptional- add onions to beef while in the pan.
  • Fill the corn tortillas with ground turkey and chopped onions, roll, place in casserole dish, pour enchilada sauce on top.
  • Top with a sprinkle of shredded cheese. 
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.  
I served our enchiladas with a side of brown rice.  To make the rice a little a little more interesting I added 1/2 cup of almond milk...good idea!

I also made a side of black bean salsa which consisted of:
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup of yellow corn
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
Definitely something that I can handle making again!
