How to Lighten Up Enchilada Casserole:
One of our favorite ways to lighten up a recipe with ground beef is to substitute it with ground turkey.
Most of the time our husbands and kids can’t even tell the difference!
If you decide to substitute in ground turkey, make sure to choose lean turkey.
We love using Jennie-O Turkey products because they have so little fat and always taste amazing.
This recipe calls for one pound of ground beef, so you’ll need one pound of lean ground turkey. To guarantee perfectly cooked ground turkey, we love to use a Chop-Stir.
Our mom showed us the trick to cooking meat with these and now it is the kitchen tool I can’t live without!
