  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large Vidalia onion diced
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels thawed
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 jalapeno minced
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 cup enchilada sauce
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  1. In a large sauté pan, heat the olive oil over med-high heat and add the onions. Saute the onions until they begin to soften, add the bell pepper and continue cooking until the onions are translucent. Stir in the corn and continue cooking for approximately 3-4 minutes or until the vegetables begin to carmelize. Stir in the garlic, jalapeno and black beans and cook for 2 additional minutes. Add the chili powder and remove from the heat. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  3. In a large bowl, gently mix together the ground turkey, cilantro, salt, pepper, egg, panko and vegetable mixture using your hands or a pastry blender. Be careful not to compact the mixture too much or the meat will be tough. Form the meat mixture into a loaf in a large baking pan and top with half the enchilada sauce coating the entire surface. Sprinkle the top with the cheese and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the meatloaf is cooked through.
  4. Allow the meatloaf to rest for 10 minutes before serving. Slice into 1/2 inch pieces and serve. Serve with the remaining enchilada sauce and top with sour cream or greek yogurt if desired.
