Leftover Skinny Taco Dip

Leftover Skinny Taco Dip

Leftover Skinny Taco Dip

Got leftover taco meat? There are so many things you can do with it, but we love to make a Skinny Taco Dip and serve it with whole wheat tortillas or top a baked potato with it. We “skinny” this dip up with a low-calorie sour cream and greek yogurt mixture. Greek yogurt is an easy way to lose some of the fat in your traditional recipes by eliminating half of the sour cream. Because of yogurt’s natural probiotics, it actually makes your recipes healthier too.

Lower Sodium Taco Casserole
 
Author:
Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Mexican
Ingredients
  • For the Casserole:
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 can no salt added corn
  • 1 can no salt added red beans of choice, blended in food processor
  • 1½ cups unsalted corn tortilla chips
  • 1½ cups enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of choice
  • For the Enchilada Sauce:
  • 3 tbsp Canola Oil
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • ¼ cup chili powder
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1-10 oz can tomato paste
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
Instructions
  1. Prepare your sauce by adding oil and corn starch to a medium stovetop pan, whisk and heat for 1 minute, then add all other ingredients, stir, and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  2. Cook ground turkey until almost done.
  3. Add 1 cup enchilada sauce to turkey and simmer until turkey is cooked thoroughly.
  4. Crush ½ of the tortilla chips and cover the bottom of a 9x9 baking dish.
  5. Cover the crushed chips with the turkey mixture.
  6. Cover with corn.
  7. Cover with bean mixture.
  8. Crush the remaining ½ of the tortilla chips and sprinkle on top.
  9. Cover with cheese of choice (we use Monterrey Jack).
  10. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce evenly on top.
  11. Cover and cook in a 425º preheated oven for about 30 minutes, until cheese is evenly melted.

By using lean ground turkey instead of ground beef, this recipe is lower in fat than the traditional taco casserole recipe. The homemade enchilada sauce makes this dish moist and flavorful and you can use the same sauce recipe for enchiladas, burritos, and other Mexican feasts that call for a tomato-based sauce.
