This meal is perfect for a quick, frugal family dinner. The flour tortillas are cut into little squares using a pizza cutter and then cooked into a sauce made up of ground turkey, tomato soup, salsa, and a little water. The result is soft dough-like squares that taste similar to pasta. I asked my kids what they thought the tortillas were (without telling them they were tortillas), and they thought it was some kind of noodle and said that it tasted like ravioli. What kid doesn’t love ravioli?
I love this stuff! I hope you do too!
Add-ins you might like.
This recipe goes great with corn! We served our corn on the side, but you could also toss some in as it cooks. For some extra fiber, you could also add some canned black beans that are rinsed and drained. The cheese melted on the top is optional.
About the tortillas I used.
If you have been following Meal Planning Mommies over the past month, you have probably seen me write about low point tortillas. My favorite kind, and the kind I love to use now that I know they exist, are mentioned in this recipe.
My new fave.
The Olé Xtreme Wellness High Fiber Low Carb 8 inch Wraps are just 50 calories and 1 Weight Watchers Smart Point each! They are decked out with a ton of fiber and keep the carbs down, but most importantly, they taste fantastic! I just found them at the new Meijer where we live, but before that, I bought them on Amazon. You can check out our list of other low point tortillas, wraps, and flatbreads for more ideas if your store does not carry these.
If you do get the Olé Xtreme Wellness tortillas on Amazon, you will be happy to know that they freeze great! Just thaw them when you are ready to use them. If you forget to thaw them, like I did, you can just microwave them for about 45 seconds, and you’ll be all set!
