Skinny Enchiladas

I love meals that are healthy, delicious but don’t compromise on flavor. Which is why these Skinny Enchiladas have quickly become one of my favorite new dinners.

I have said it before and I will say it again, Mexican food is the one type of food I could have all day everyday and never tire of. In fact, if I could only choose one food type to live off for the rest of my life… it would be Mexican without a second thought.

These Skinny Enchiladas were approved by all my family members. No one could even tell it used ground turkey versus ground beef.

I used my Homemade Enchilada Sauce for the sauce and it was AMAZING, but you could always use canned sauce if you want to skip a couple steps.

If you are looking to eat a well balanced, healthier and down-right delicious meal, this is one you absolutely have to try out! It is definitely going in as part of our dinner rotation from now on!

This is one delicious and healthy meal that doesn’t compromise on flavor! It is even picky eater approved!

    USEFUL TIPS TO MAKE CHICKEN ENCHILADAS:
    I always grate chicken breast in my hand, usually in my slow cooker I make a pack of chicken breast for use for recipes throughout the week. Fill the chicken with water or broth and cook for 4 to 6 hours low. Now chicken also works. The enchilada sauce in this recipe is very good, I created a separate post for it, I usually do two layers and freeze the rest!
