Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

Mexican works really well with Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sparkling rosé. Acidic white wines like riesling or low-tannin reds like pinot noir can work well with Mexican dishes. Sparkling rosé is a safe pairing too. The White Oak Russian River Pinot Noir with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 20 dollars per bottle.

White Oak Russian River Pinot Noir

A delicate Pinot Noir with cranberry, pomegranate and a slight dusty, floral note on the nose. Leads to a soft entry on the palette, followed by flavors of boysenberry, plum and leather, supported by subtle and well integrated oak. This wine lingers at the finish with velvety tannins.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In the food processor or blender, add the sour cream, green chiles, cilantro, salsa, chile powder, and cumin until smooth. Set aside. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute the onions until translucent. Add the garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add the turkey and cook until it is no longer pink about 5 minutes. Add the enchilada sauce, 1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder and black beans and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 10 minutes and season with salt and pepper. In a 9 x 14 Pyrex pan, spray a couple pumps of Misto or PAM and layer the tortillas on the bottom. Spoon half of the turkey-bean mixture on top. Top with 1 cup of the cheese. Add the sour cream mixture and spread it out evenly. Add another layer of tortillas and add the rest of the turkey-bean mixture. Top with 1 cup of cheese, and garnish with chopped green onions and broken tortilla chips. Add additional cheese if you like. Cover with aluminum foil (make sure you spray Misto or PAM on the aluminum foil so it doesn't stick to the top) and bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm, garnish with freshly chopped chives and enjoy!

Tips

Health Tips

  • Before you pass up garlic because you don't want the bad breath that comes with it, keep in mind that the compounds that cause garlic breath also offer a lot of health benefits. Garlic has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial, and antiviral properties. If you really want to get the most health benefits out of your garlic, choose Spanish garlic, which contains the most allicin (one of garlic's most beneficial compounds).

  • Since most of its calories come from fat, sour cream has a bad reputation for being an unhealthy food. However, fat is an important part of the diet and studies suggest people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who reach for reduced fat products. That said, fat has more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein, so if you are counting calories to lose weight, you might want to try substituting greek yogurt for some of the sour cream in recipes that call for a lot of it.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • Confused by the different types of cream — Most differences arise from the fat content of the cream, and whether or not the cream has been "soured" by adding lactic acid bacteria to give it a tangy flavor.

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.

  • Here's a trick for peeling garlic quickly. Put the garlic clove on your cutting board. Take a knife with a thick blade and place the blade flat across the garlic clove (the clove should be closer to the handle than the middle of the blade). Whack down on the flat side of the blade with your free hand to smoosh the garlic a bit. Done correctly, the skin will peel right off.
