Before the holidays I was in such a cooking rut. And Brian was in a doing dishes rut, so we ended up just going out to eat all the time. Not a good situation. But after a few weeks of holidays, parties, traveling, and eating way too much junk I was actually really excited to get back to cooking and having low key family meals at home. Over the break I pinned about a million recipes, including this one for Bubble Up Enchiladas. It’s actually an old Weight Watchers recipe that I tried years and years ago and had forgotten about. You mix ground turkey with enchilada sauce and tomato sauce, then stir in quartered biscuit dough, top with cheese and bake. I added sauteed onions and bell pepper, too:
The Trader Joe’s enchilada sauce is good but definitely has a little kick. Jack had a few bites and then complained that his “tongue hurt.” Poor guy.
It’s a good, easy casserole for weeknight dinners. And perfect for a gross, rainy day like today. We topped ours with sour cream, but cilantro, pickled jalapenos or green onions would be great, too.
On the side we had roasted zucchini and carrots (another Pinterest find). I’m usually not a huge zucchini fan, but I loved these! I cut the carrots and zucchini into small wedges (like french fries), tossed them in a freezer bag with some olive oil and seasoned salt, then spread them on a pan topped with parchment and an olive oil mist and roasted at 425 for about 30 minutes. The recipe says 20 but I wanted them really caramelized.
Make sure that the veggies aren’t touching- I ended up using 2 baking sheets in order to fit them all.
So any good recipes I should try?? I mean, before this cooking motivation wears off…
