Turkey Enchiladas

Turkey Enchiladas

"Every year we rent a villa in the mountains above Acapulo. My husband, 13-year-old son, our friends, and their families all stay together; there are 14 of us. I love the food. At first, I couldn't quite imagine pecans in an enchilada. But trust me, it tastes great." --CL Reader

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons stick margarine or butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans, divided
  • 1 (8-ounce) block fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups chopped cooked turkey breast (about 1/2 pound)

  • 6 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups fat-free milk

  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed reduced-fat, reduced-sodium cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Melt margarine in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and 2 tablespoons pecans; cook 3 minutes until onion is tender and pecans are toasted. Remove from heat.
