This recipe is half @_littlefitone โ€˜s ground turkey green Chile bake, half my momโ€™s own enchilada casserole (swipe to the end for the full-fat recipe she pulled out of her recipe book to send me!) Loved Haleyโ€™s idea of using fat free cream cheese & her own mini enchilada recipe is too cute ๐Ÿ˜ . I split this into 5 GIANT servings since I was meal prepping it. . ๐Ÿ”ธ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜€ for 1/5 : 378 cals (36.8P/7.7F/39.6C) . ๐Ÿ”ธ๐—œ๐—ป๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐˜€: โ€”1 pound cooked, shredded chicken breast (mine weighed 15.5oz raw) โ€”2 cloves garlic โ€”120g onion โ€”11 Extra Thin Mission Corn Tortillas โ€”1 container fat free cream cheese โ€”4oz/.5 cup nonfat greek yogurt โ€”1 15oz container Green Chile Enchilada Sauce โ€” ~half a 10oz container of green Chile enchilada sauce (measured 175g) โ€”150g Velveeta Mexican Shreds โ€”Cumin, Salt, pepper, TJโ€™s Chile Lime seasoning . ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐Ÿณ๐—œ๐—ป๐˜€๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€: 1. In a pan sprayed with non-stick spray, cook your onion & garlic for a few minutes until soft. 3. Add the cooked chicken, cumin, salt etc. & stir until combined 4. Remove from heat. 5. Mash the cream cheese up first (microwave for ~10 seconds to get it soft) then stir together with greek yogurt & enchilada sauce 6. Spray a 9×13 pan & preheat oven to 350 7. I lined the bottom of the pan with 3.5 tortillas (use more if you need) then added a layer of chicken and a thin layer of sauce mixture, then cheese. Repeat with another layer of tortillas, chicken, sauce, cheese, then top with a final layer of tortillas, sauce, & cheese. 8. This is where my second can of enchilada sauce came in because I didnโ€™t have enough cream sauce mixed for the top so I opened the second can, weighed it, and then poured enough on to coat the top & weighed the can again for measurements sake. 9. Bake for 30 minutes, then let sit for at least 15 minutes before serving/plating out into dishes . The entire casserole came out to be 1525g total so I aimed for ~305g per container. . ๐—ก๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฒ๐˜€: โ€”use more tortillas if you need! I tore mine to fill in the gaps & use as few as possible. โ€”next time I want to experiment with adding veggies!
