I’m obsessed with easy, quick dinner meals . . . and I’m also obsessed with ground turkey. I’m constantly looking for ways to incorporate ground turkey into my repertoire, but I need the meals to be somewhat healthy too (I’m always trying to watch my weight).

I should also note that I have to combine this with another factor  – my boyfriend also needs to be pleased to with the meals, and he’s not necessarily on the diet train like am. This turkey enchilada casserole is our compromise!

It’s REALLY delicious. I used this recipe from Table for Two and added a few things and subtracted some others to make it my own.

The result is a yummy ground turkey casserole that is easy to make and isn’t too high in calories (fulfilling my needs) yet is filling and tastes great (fulfilling my man friend’s needs).

Everyone around here is happy when I make it, and I promise the same will hold true in your household as well.

Turkey casserole will be on the menu this week. It looks great, and I am so excited that is calorie controlled for my diabetic husband. Yet not bland and uninteresting! ?

I made this tonight super yummy. Higher in points for me so I eat it in weigh in day because I eat very few points for breakfast and lunch. I love this and zero point chilli! I make them on the same night the amount and prep process for turkey is the same. I double it divide it use half for this and dump half in crockpot for chilli. Have this for dinner and chili cooks until bed and is dinner and beyond the next day.
