As a child, my husband was one of the pickiest kids around, but my mother-in-law could always get him to dig in to this enchilada dish. —Ashley Wolf, Alabaster, Alabama

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 2 cans (8 ounces each) no-salt-added tomato sauce
  • 3 teaspoons dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches)
  • 2/3 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • Optional toppings: Shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and reduced-fat sour cream


  1. In a large skillet, cook turkey over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, minced onion, garlic powder, pepper and salt; heat through.
  2. In a 2-1/2-qt. round microwave-safe dish coated with cooking spray, layer 1 tortilla, about 3/4 cup meat mixture and a scant 3 tablespoons cheese. Repeat layers 3 times. Cover and microwave on high until cheese is melted, 4-5 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Serve with toppings if desired.
