This recipe is from the kitchen of my mother-in-law Doris (a.k.a. Oma in our house!) Super easy and very yummy. Makes for great leftovers too!

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cups Picante salsa (mild, medium or hot – divide use)
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed dry
  • 2 teaspoon ground cumin (divided use)
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or less to taste
  • 1 (8 ounce box) light cream-cheese, cubed
  • 12 flour tortillas (7 inch), warmed
  • 1(14½ ounce) can diced tomatoes in juice
  • 1 cup
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional toppings: shredded lettuce, black olives, diced avocados, sour cream

1. In large skillet cook turkey until no longer pink, breaking it into small pieces.
2. Add 1 cup of the Picante sauce, the spinach, 1½ teaspoon of the cumin and salt (if desired)
3. Cook and stir 5 min. or until most of the liquid has evaporated.
4. Add cream-cheese, stirring just until melted.
5. Spoon about ½ cup filling down center of each warmed tortilla; roll up and place seam-side down in a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish.
6. Combine tomatoes and remaining 1 cup Picante sauce and ½ teaspoon cumin. Spoon over enchiladas.
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 min. or until hot.
8. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese; return to oven 2 min. Top as desired.

    My kids love these. They HAVE to have the olives if not, they won’t eat them.
