  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 can (15 ounces) enchilada sauce, divided
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend, divided
  • 8 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a small bowl, mash 1 can black beans; set aside. In a large nonstick skillet, cook the turkey, pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the mashed beans, remaining beans, half of the enchilada sauce and 1/2 cup cheese; heat through.
  2. Place 2/3 cupfuls of bean mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll up and place, seam side down, in two 11x7-in. baking dishes coated with cooking spray.
  3. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over the top; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
    Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked casseroles up to 3 months. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 425°. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary to heat through and for a thermometer inserted in center to read 165°.

    This is easy and delicious. I added a little more onion and bell pepper, and added cumin and chili powder. I used the green enchilada sauce, so, with the added spices above, I didn't need taco seasoning. My husband loved it! Definitely enough for two dinners for two people if served with a simple, side vegetable.

    Took a suggestion from the reviews and added taco seasoning - very glad I did.

    This is a keeper! This made 8 enchiladas. My 2 yr old even liked the filling. I used wheat tortillas, & added chili powder & seasonings for a little spice.
