I realized something the other day. Every casserole recipe that I am drawn to involves some sort of pasta, some sort of meat, some type sauce or another, and at least one kind of cheese. This casserole takes the flavors from a traditional enchilada dish and transforms them into an easy and low fat pasta meal.
Cook the egg noodles according to the directions on the bag. Drain the cooked noodles and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the sour cream, enchilada sauce, diced green chilies, half of the shredded cheddar cheese, half of the shredded Monterey Jack cheese, and the corn.
Pour the sour cream mixture into the skillet with the ground turkey and mix it all together.
I love the texture of the soft egg noodles in contrast with the chunks of ground turkey and corn. All that cheese inside and on top of the casserole makes it so luscious. I sprinkled some chopped chives on top, which adds lovely taste and crunch to any Mexican meal.
This was super inexpensive and easy to throw together on the weekend. My husband and I reheated leftovers of it for lunch and dinner during the week at tastes just as good as the day I made it. Used ground beef (that all I had), used 2 jalapenos and 1 pablano that I flame charred and diced instead of the canned Anaheim chilies, and used homemade enchilada sauce. This is a great comfort food meal and perfect for the subzero temp we are having in the midwest and I love anything with pasta!
