Enchiladas and Apple Crisp

Please excuse the recipe absence. Last week my husband was gone, I was sick, two kids were sick, and I was overloaded with homework. So, needless to say there were a lot of very simple meals and take out that weren't worth blogging about. But last night however... ooh la la. I made healthified Enchiladas!!! And boy were they good. And for dessert, simple and quick Apple Crisp with vanilla ice cream.


1 lb of ground turkey
1 onion chopped
1 box of frozen chopped spinach
1/2 cup of light sour cream
1 small can of green chilies (I used half so that it wasn't too spicy)
1/2 cup of colby and monterey jack cheese
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp of garlic and pepper mix

Cook onion and turkey
Cook spinach in microwave with lid for 3 minutes then let it cook the rest of the way in with the cooked turkey.
Add in chilies, sour cream, cheese, cumin, garlic and pepper.
Spoon mixture into tortillas and roll up.
Drizzle salsa over the top of enchiladas in pan, sprinkle with cheese and bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes uncovered or 25 minutes if you cover your pan with foil.

Apple Crisp
6 granny smith apples peeled and sliced
1/2 cup flour
8 graham crackers (2 1/2" x 5") coursely chopped
1 tsp cinnemon
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup butter melted

Place sliced apples in bottom of a deep dish baker.
In mixing bowl combine, crackers, brown sugar, cinnemon, oatmeal, flour and lastly the butter.
Pour over top of the apples and press down.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and smile as you take in the smell and taste. Your stomach will thank you.


  1. That is such a great idea using graham crackers for the crust!! I will definitely have to try it next time I make apple crisp!! Hope you are all feeling better!

  2. We had both for dinner tonight and both got rave reviews and are now in the "repeat" folder. I made a couple of minor changes. To the Enchiladas I put the cheese on the top, over the salsa and then baked with foil over the top. I have a cheese hater in the family and this way he could eat them cheeseless. Don't ask. I don't get it either. And to the apple crisp I used cinnamon graham crackers because that's what I had and I added a small package of craisins in with the apples just because we like craisins and it added a pretty color. But I think it would have been just as good without the changes. Great recipes!
