Ingredients
  

Sauce

  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 15 oz. unsweetened tomato sauce
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt

Enchiladas

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
  • 3 oz. cauliflower, riced
  • 1 oz. red onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup water
  • 8 oz. deli turkey
  • 1 cup Mexican cheese, shredded

Toppings

  • pickled jalapeños
  • ¼ cup sour cream

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). For 4 servings, grease a 9 x 12" (23 x 30 cm) baking dish. For more servings, use a larger dish or multiple dishes.
  • Combine the sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a large pan over medium heat, add olive oil, ground beef, onion, riced cauliflower, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and water. Cook for about 7 to 10 minutes until beef is cooked through.
  • Add half the sauce to the browned beef mixture. Put two overlapping slices of turkey together to form a long roll. Place 4-5 tbsp of beef mixture on the turkey, lengthwise and slightly off-center. Lift the side of the turkey that is nearest to the beef, and roll it to the opposite side. Repeat, to make two rolls per serving.
  • Place beef-stuffed rolls into the baking dish and sprinkle with half the cheese. Pour the rest of the enchilada sauce on top and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cheese has melted on top.
  • Top with sour cream and jalapenos before serving.
