I haven't tried this one yet. It's a weigh watchers recipe. The pic makes it look good plus I am trying to find new recipes to use turkey in.
- cooking spray
- 3⁄4 lb lean ground turkey
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup skim milk
- 4 ounces canned jalapeno peppers, drained and chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 3 large burrito-size wheat flour tortillas
- 3 cups tomatoes, chopped
- 10 tablespoons shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 350°F Coat a large skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Place turkey, onion and chili powder in skillet and cook until turkey is browned, stirring occasionally to break up meat, about 8 minutes. Remove turkey mixture from skillet and set aside.
- Place skillet over medium-high heat and add flour. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium; simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes.
- Remove skillet from heat; stir in turkey mixture, jalapenos and cumin.
- Wrap tortillas in damp paper towels and microwave on HIGH until softened, about 15 seconds. Place 1 tortilla in bottom of a 9-inch pie plate. Spread 1/3 of turkey mixture over tortilla. Spoon 1 cup of tomato on top and sprinkle with 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) of cheese. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients ending up with 2 tablespoons of cheese.
- Cover pie plate with aluminum foil and cook until cheese melts and filling is warmed through, about 15 minutes. Let stand, covered, 2 minutes before cutting into 6 wedges.
Cook this for at least 45 minutes if not longer. All the juice makes it sopping wet. Make sure to drain as much liquid off ingredients as possible. However the flavor is really really good.
For weight watchers, this was pretty good. The serving size is a little small for me but overall I liked it. It is between 7 and 8 points per serving (1 pie is 6 servings).
