Today’s Menu: Turkey Enchilada Dip with Multi-Grain Tostitos Chips w/ Multi-Grained Scoops

 

 

Turkey Enchilada Dip w Multi-Grained Scoops 006

Spent a restless night last night, awake on and off all night! For Breakfast I toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread (lightly buttered) and Scrambled 2 medium Eggs, seasoned with Sea Salt Ground Pepper,and a sprinkle of Sargento reduced Fat Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Hot and Humid outside again. Got some work done outside early before it got too bad. Trimmed the vines down the side of the driveway and got the leaf blower out and cleaned around our wooden deck. Back inside did a few light cleaning jobs around the house. For Dinner tonight another new recipe, Turkey Enchilada Dip w/ Multi-Grained Scoops.

 

With all the heat and humidity I didn’t want a full meal, just something light to snack on. Something like, Turkey Enchilada Dip! I got the recipe idea on an email recipe from the Add A Pinch website (http://addapinch.com/). Visit the site when you get a chance, it’s loaded with delicious recipes! So the original recipe was Beef Enchilada Dip Recipe but to save on calories and fat I’m used one of my favorites, Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast. So now we have Turkey Enchilada Dip.

 

Turkey Enchilada Dip w Multi-Grained Scoops 002
To make the dish I’ll need; 1 pound Jennie – O Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast, ½ medium Red Onion (diced), 2 cloves Garlic (minced), 1 1/2 cups Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce, 2 cups Kraft 2% Shredded Colby- Monterrey Jack Cheese, Daisy Reduced Fat Sour Cream, Sliced Olives (optional), and Tostito’s Multi-Grain Scoops.

 

 

 
To prepare it I browned the Ground Turkey in a large skillet that I had sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. When Turkey has browned, drain. Then added the RTurkey Enchilada Dip w Multi-Grained Scoops 003ed Onion and Garlic and cooked until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce and top with the Shredded Cheese. Cover and allow cheese just start to melt, about 2 more minutes. Top with Sour Cream, Sliced Olives (optional), and served with Scoops Chips. And done, enjoy! Makes a good Dinner on those nights where nothing sounded good, like tonight, and you didn’t want a full meal. This meal is also Mom and dad approved, my parents loved it! I had a Diet Peach Snapple to go with Dinner. The original recipe and web link is below. For dessert later a bowl of Del Monte Sliced Cling Peaches in Light Syrup along with a scoop of Breyer’s Low Carb Vanilla Bean Ice Cream!

Apple Cake

Apple Cake A delicious fall dessert. Serves 18.
We have a few apple trees on the ranch, and this year we had a hearty crop. I use them in preparing sweet fall treats, including pie’s, sauce and apple cake. The apple cake is one of my favorites, it’s easy, and oh so good. Because they freeze well, I like to make up a few extra’s to have on hand. Delicious for breakfast, or serve with caramel sauce and fresh whipped cream, for an elegant dessert.
