Less than 10 ingredients and 30 minutes of cooking time make this turkey enchilada stir fry with couscous one of quintessential weeknight meals! It's bursting with flavor without all the calories of the traditional version.
You can't possible walk into a Tex-Mex restaurant and not see enchiladas on the menu. I mean what's not to like about corn tortilla filled with various ingredients and drenched in cheese and sauce? But because I have an untamable itch to "healthify" any and every beloved dishes, I present to you ground turkey enchilada stir fry with couscous. Today’s recipe doesn’t involve any rolling of tortillas nor does it require covering with copious amounts of cheese. However, every bite will remind you of the flavors of this popular comfort food.
As a dietitian specializing in digestive health and weight management, I can share my knowledge and experience for hours with my clients. However, knowledge without action doesn’t produce any fruit. And that action requires spending time in the kitchen.
Over time, I’ve come to realize that many people struggle with 1) time management, 2) ease of preparation, and 3) cooking something that the whole family can enjoy. Thus began my journey of developing recipes, like my "Cook Once, Eat Thrice" series, that tackle these common barriers.
With less than 10 ingredients and 30 minutes of cooking time, you and your whole family can sit down to a hearty and delicious meal. I shared this recipe on the Food Network’s Healthy Eats Blog!

Made this tonight--super easy and very yummy. Could have used a little salt. And next time will probably serve with brown rice or quinoa instead of couscous. Thanks for the great recipe!
Thanks, Carolyn for taking the time to let me know! Glad you enjoyed it 😉

This sounds delicious, and I bet my fiance would even like it even though he claims he "doesn't like ground turkey!" 😉
