Enchilada Casserole with Ground Turkey


Good morning! I don’t do this too often, but I have a recipe to share with you today! I have made it twice now and Bobby loves it. It’s easy, quick, and we usually have leftovers, which is a plus for me….no cooking the next night! I found a variation of it online but changed it up a bit to make it more to my liking. I am really picky and I even like this, so I think it would be a kid favorite as well. I am not a HUGE onion fan so I chop them up really tiny and don’t even notice them.

  1. oooh and we always always have the JENNY-O in the fridge waiting…

    Our top two recipes are turkey burgers and meat sauce. We add worchesteshire, egg whites, McCormic Hamburger seasoning, diced jalepenos, and Rouses Cajun seasoning to the meat to make the burger patties. The eggwhites are key to keeping them moist and in one piece on the grill. The meat sauce couldn’t be easier–brown meat in skillet with the trinity, drain, combine in pot with 1 jar of Emeril’s Homestyle marinara, add a little garlic powder and italian seasoning, simmer for an hour and serve with whole wheat pasta or over quinoa. It makes a thick sauce.

  4. Yum! I make something very similar but add chopped zucchini and black beans. Now you have me wanting it tonight, but pork is already in the slow cooker!

    You know, I’ve started making my enchiladas into more of a casserole too. Not as pretty perhaps, but so much easier.

  6. Tara Burner says:

    that looks easy and yummy…may make this for my daughter 🙂

  7. Looks yummy! I make the non-casserole version…but this looks really good! I may have to try this next time! :0)

  8. As you know, I don’t eat turkey. But you just reminded me of an enchilada/burrito recipe I have that I need to make again soon. Yum!

  9. YUM! I love Mexican casseroles. I’ll have to save this one to make.

  10. YUM! I love Mexican and I am 99% sure my kids will enjoy this + it looks so easy

  11. Sounds delicious! I don’t have many Ground Turkey favorites, but I am going to give this a shot!

  12. I’ve made ground turkey spaghetti sauce! It was awesome!

    Your enchiladas look good 🙂

  13. All my ground turkey recipes are my fave (since sadly I can’t have ground beef). I really really love meatloaf, though.
