Tortilla-less Turkey Enchiladas

Last night's weight loss surgery friendly dinner. High in protein, low in carbs, moist and super yummy. I served them with a simple Mixed Green Salad. Can't wait for lunch leftovers. Mmmm.


Shelly's Tortilla-less Turkey Enchiladas

8 slices Turkey Cold Cut, sliced thin
8 slices Swiss Cheese, sliced thin
1/2 Yellow Onion, chopped
3 Green Onions, chopped
8 Mushrooms, sliced
1 - 4 oz. can whole Mild Green Chilis, seeded and chopped (I used Ortega)
1 Tablespoon Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry (I use this)
1 Tablespoon Butter
1/2 Cup Chicken Broth
1/4 Cup Sour Cream or Fage Greek Yogurt
1/4 teaspoon of Southwest Seasoning (Cumin, Paprika, Cayenne Blend)
dash of Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
1/4 cup Mexican Cheese Blend, shredded (Colby Jack is great)
Olive Oil for sauteing

Place 1 slice of Swiss on top of turkey slice. Roll up. Saute lightly till golden. Flipping once.

Place in Pyrex casserole dish. Set aside.

Saute onions and mushrooms till golden. Add butter and pancake mix and stir well. Add broth, cook till thickened. Stir in yogurt, green chilis and seasonings. Pour over turkey rolls. Sprinkle with Mexican cheese.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until golden & bubbly.

Wow! You certaily are a culinary genius! My fiance and I have been fighting the never ending diet war for the past year (he got back from Iraq and his way of dealing has been food).

You have so many great ideas on here so we can still enjoy the food we eat but eat it in the right way.

Thanks so much for sharing!

That's a very interesting idea. I make a lot of enchiladas, I'll have to try using turkey or chicken in place of the tortilla now. You are clever!
