Dinner with Friends–Skinny Enchiladas

Our dinner guest came over last week and we had a yummy Enchilada.  I found this skinny Turkey and Black Bean Enchiladas of course on Pinterest but it is one of my favorite sites as you know Skinny Taste.

This recipe was really simple to make and even the kids enjoyed eating it.

  • 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion

  • kosher salt and fresh pepper to taste

(I skipped the chipotle chilies)

In a medium saucepan, spray cooking spray and sauté garlic. Add chiles, chili powder, cumin, chicken broth, tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reducethe heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Set aside until ready to use.
In a large skillet brown the turkey and season with salt. When the turkey is browned,add onion, garlic, black beans, cilantro, green chiles, diced tomatoes, cumin and chili powder. Mix well and simmer on low, covered for 20 minutes. Remove lid andsimmer an additional 5-10 minutes to reduce the liquid.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish with non-stick spray. Put 1/2 cup turkey mixture into each tortilla and roll it. Place on baking dish seam side down. Top with enchilada sauce and cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven on the middle rack for 20-25 minutes. Top with low fat sour cream, cilantro or scallions if you wish. (Extra points) Makes 8 enchiladas.


Happy Friday!  I will be helping at Cole’s school that is hosting an Olympics at a normal military base.  I hope to get home early and maybe put my feet up.  Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I think I need to try this one. I have to find a way to get the sauce to be low carb! These sound yummy.

  2. Delicious looking recipe, I have some Weight Watchers tortilla wraps too! X Hope you are having a great weekend. :)
