So much easier than rolling enchiladas but still fantastic flavor of them. Healthy Turkey Enchilada Casserole with Salsa Verde - Low Calorie, Low Fat Dinner Recipe #SundaySupper

While a lot of people think stews and soup for cold weather, I also think casseroles. You can put them together earlier in the day; then cook them so they are piping hot for dinner. Plus we always have leftover turkey in the freezer. That tends to happen when your Dad makes two big turkeys for 7 people. Why you might ask. He likes to roast one and grill or smoke another. Cooking is fun for him, and Thanksgiving is all his. He gets to use all of his creativity which means lots of variety. In addition to two turkeys, he makes three different types of stuffing not to mention all the other sides. It is a fun meal.

When you are putting that much time into one dinner, you need some quick and easy dinner ideas. That makes Turkey Enchilada Casserole with Salsa Verde perfect. I use to make actual enchiladas, but I have to admit I hate rolling up the tortillas. It seems to take forever. In this casserole you simply layer all the ingredients. You don’t need to moisten the tortillas then hope they don’t fall apart as you roll them. Plus I was able to add some additional vegetables without my daughter looking at me as if I had two heads. She is highly suspicious of enchiladas with vegetables in them.

Give yourself a break, use up that leftover turkey and enjoy a healthy and delicious dinner of Turkey Enchilada Casserole with Salsa Verde. By the way, you can also make this casserole with leftover chicken. Go for it!

  1. I still haven't made salsa verde, but it's on my list of things to make next summer when the weather warms up. But after reading this I think I need to try this sooner than later - I love enchiladas!!
  2. I agree! I'm all for casseroles in the cooler weather too. Anything that warms up the oven, makes the house smell amazing and makes my home cozy~
  3. This sounds super good!
  4. That looks so good, we are huge Mexican fans here. I like the salsa verde combination with the turkey, yum!
  5. Yes, casseroles are some of the best comfort foods---especially when they have a Mexican twist. Your enchilada casserole looks so yummy!
  6. This looks like a perfect warming casserole for cooler weather!
  7. Verde Enchiladas just happen to be one of my favorites! I love that you added broccoli to yours! Yum!
  8. I love enchiladas but they can be time consuming. This is a great alternative. I'll be keeping the recipe handy for my leftover turkey!
  9. I'm always on the lookout for leftover ideas. Thanks for sharing
  10. What a great use for leftovers This will be perfect after Thanksgiving.
  11. I'm with you on the casseroles - perfect fall food, just like this one. Feels like forever since I had a good, flavorful enchilada, so I'm definitely looking forward to trying this!
  12. This looks like a meal that my whole family would love, I'm definitely going to add it to our meal rotation!
  13. A casserole is a perfect late-fall dish! Adding some Mexican flavor really takes it up a notch too!
  14. I always love when recipes have ten ingredients or less like this one, and the flavors look delicious!
  15. I am absolutely crazy for queso fresco. I will put it on anything, really- and I'm hatching a plan to make it into cheesecake...
  16. Love salsa verde. Yum!
  17. Looks delicious... and easy, but nowhere in our small town (at any of our 3 markets) have I been able to find Greek Cream Cheese, although I did find it online, so I know it exists. Where are you finding it?
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Sue, Kroger carries it here. They actually have their own brand of it. You can use reduced fat cream cheese if you cannot find it. The calories and fat are slightly more but it will taste delicious.
