Use your spiralizer to turn carrots into rice and make this healthy, gluten-free enchilada bake. A homemade enchilada bake from real ingredients mixed with ground turkey, veggies, and melted together with cheese, this will become a meal prep favorite.
Carrot and Turkey Enchilada Bake
If you love enchiladas, you’ll love this spiralized spin on it, using spiralized rice and all of the flavors of enchiladas, without the tortillas. Spices like cumin, chili powder, and oregano give this bake a robust flavor and the melted cheese and crunchy vegetables make for a delectable consistency.
Adding in ground turkey gives more protein and texture, but if you’re vegetarian, simply omit! You can also swap in ground chicken or ground beef here for a different take. You’ll want to make this over and over again, so you may want some variety.
It’s simply topped with black olives and cilantro, but some sliced avocado would work nicely, too. This bake is meal prep friendly, saves well (frozen or refrigerated) and will have the whole family running to the table and you’ll be amazed how much the spiralized carrot rice tastes like “regular” rice. Sometimes, it’s all about tricking your tastebuds!
This gluten free casserole works well for breakfast as well – just top with a fried egg and some hot sauce for an entirely new meal!
