Turkey Black Bean Enchilada Skillet is a quick and easy weeknight dinner that is full of pantry items and will please your whole family!
I don’t think there’s anyone who wouldn’t benefit from a quick and easy dinner recipe, especially one full of pantry items. We’re all tired by the end of the day, and just want something that’s tasty and healthy to serve our family!
This Turkey Black Bean Enchilada Skillet is the solution to all of those nights when you think “what the heck am I going to make tonight?!” Not only does it come together super quickly, but it is truly a family pleaser.
This recipe starts with cooking red onion and ground turkey. More of a beef person? Use ground beef instead. Looking for a way to make this enchilada skillet even faster? Swap out the ground turkey for rotisserie chicken! It’s equally delicious and on your plate 10 minutes sooner. This recipe is very adaptable.
After the onion and meat are cooked, the rest of it comes together in a snap. The spices are added, along with diced tomatoes, enchilada sauce, black beans, corn, and tortillas. The entire skillet is simmered for a few minutes, and then you add cheese. I just mixed the cheese right in but if you’re cooking the meal in an oven-proof skillet, you can certainly broil the cheese on top!
I highly recommend topping this enchilada skillet with diced green onions and sour cream/plain Greek yogurt. Other ideas are diced avocado, cilantro, salsa, and hot sauce.
Like I mentioned, this dish was a big hit with the family and since it was so easy, I will surely be making it again and again!
