Cheesy Turkey Enchiladas with Tomatillo Salsa and Cilantro

This is another recipe I have made lately that I can't wait to make again!

Thanks to Rocco Dispirito!

Serves 4, you may want to double because leftovers would be very welcome.

•12 ounces ground turkey breast
•4 low-carb tortillas,(9 inches each)or whatever kind you have in the fridge
•2/3 cup fat-free spicy black bean dip , (I made my own when I didn't find any in the store)
•Freshly ground black pepper
•1 jar (12 ounces) tomatillo salsa , such as Ortega
•1 cup reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
•1 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
•1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat the oven to 450°.

Heat a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey and cook, stirring to break it up a little, until it is just cooked through, about 4 minutes.

Meanwhile, using flameproof tongs, char the tortillas lightly on each side over an open flame, or toast them under a preheated broiler. Keep the tortillas warm by covering them with a clean kitchen towel as you go.

Stir the black bean dip into the turkey. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Lay the tortillas on a work surface, and divide the turkey mixture among them. Fold the sides of the tortillas in over the filling and roll the tortillas up tightly to encase the filling. Lay them side by-side in a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Spoon the salsa over the tortillas, and sprinkle with the cheese. Bake until the cheese is bubbly and the enchiladas are hot throughout, 10 to 12 minutes.

Sprinkle the cilantro over the enchiladas, and serve.
