Turkey and Black Bean Enchiladas

I have made almost all my enchilada recipes since I've been living with my parents, and my mom has loved them all. However, she raved so much about how this one is her favorite and I need to remember that for her! She's right, these are amazing. Filling, delicious, and from SkinnyTaste! Doesn't get much better.

1 lb extra lean ground turkey
15.5 can black beans, drained
4.5 oz can chopped green chiles
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
2 cloves garlic
1/4 c chopped onion
1/4 c chopped cilantro
1-2 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp chili powder
8 (6-inch) low carb whole wheat flour tortillas
1 c reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese
nonstick cooking spray

For the Enchilada Sauce:
2 garlic cloves, minced
1-2 tbsp chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1-1/2 cups tomato sauce
1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
3/4 c fat free chicken broth
kosher salt and fresh pepper to taste

In a medium saucepan, spray cooking spray and sautĂ© garlic. Add chiles, chili powder, cumin, chicken broth, tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reducethe heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Set aside until ready to use.

In a large skillet brown the turkey and season with salt. When the turkey is browned,add onion, garlic, black beans, cilantro, green chiles, diced tomatoes, cumin and chili powder. Mix well and simmer on low, covered for 20 minutes. Remove lid andsimmer an additional 5-10 minutes to reduce the liquid.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 13 by 9-inch glass baking dish with non-stick spray. Put 1/2 cup turkey mixture into each tortilla and roll it. Place on baking dish seam side down. Top with enchilada sauce and cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake in the oven on the middle rack for 20-25 minutes. Top with low fat sour cream, cilantro or scallions if you wish.
