This recipe is a tried and true family favorite. My mom and I have been making it for years now. Last weekend while I was home I offered to cook for my parents and knew I wanted/needed to make these. We served them with the chopped Mexican Caesar salad I posted Monday and it was the perfect combo. The sour cream cheese sauce on these is so good! You can easily make these ahead of time and then just bake at dinner time. Enjoy!
T U R K E Y E N C H I L A D A S + S O U R C R E A M C H E E S E S A U C E
1 pound ground turkey
1 green pepper diced
1 small onion diced
1 jalapeno seeded and diced
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon cumin
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 cup salsa
2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
sliced green onions + cilantro for garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray cooking spray in a 9×13 dish.
Cook Turkey in a skillet until browned and cooked through. Remove turkey from pan and set aside in a bowl. In that same skillet heat olive oil and add in diced onions, bell pepper and jalapenos. Cook about 5 minutes.
In a medium bowl stir together flour and cumin. Slowly mix in chicken broth. Add this mixture to the onions/bell pepper/ jalapeno. Bring to a boil then simmer until sauce thickens, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream and cheddar cheese.
In a large bowl combine the turkey, salsa, and 1 cup of the sour cream cheese mixture. Spoon this mixture into tortillas and roll them up and place seam down in baking dish. Pour the remaining sour cream cheese sauce over top and then top with extra cheese. Bake 30 minutes or until bubbly. Top with green onions and cilantro. We serve ours with extra jalapeno and taco sauce.
After I posted my organized cookbooks I had several requests to share my favorites. Below are my absolute favorites that I use often. I will say I am particular about cookbooks, I like ones with pictures of every recipe and ones that are easy to navigate and these fit the bill. They are listed in no particular order. I promise you can’t go wrong with any of them.
I love all of GP’s cookbooks but this one is probably my favorite. I have made so many recipes from here and they all have been amazing and easy to make too!
Lots of easy and healthy week night family meals.
This is a great vegetarian cookbook.
I just picked this up a few weeks ago and it has already become a favorite. I have bookmarked half of the recipes to try out! This is another vegetarian favorite.
I own every single Ina Garten cookbook and they are all amazing. These are probably my two favorites out of the bunch.
This is another fairly new cookbook but I can tell it will be a favorite. I have followed their blog and instagram for years and love Half Baked Harvest. Their food styling and photography is gorgeous.
This is another vegetarian favorite. I love meat but I also tend to like more plant based meals. The energy balls recipe and Green smoothie are a few favorites.
Lots of great heathy recipes. I always bust this out in January when I want to detox and reset my eating habits.
