Chili Relleno Puff

Chili Relleno Puff
(Freddie S.)
1 pound ground turkey, browned, crumbled and drained
1 small onion, diced (cook with ground turkey)
5 eggs, beaten until lemon-colored (about 3 minutes)
3 Tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 to 1/2 cup salsa (I saved this to put on top)
2 cups lowfat ricotta cheese
1 large can (7 oz.) diced, mild green chilis
1 cup shredded cheese (Jack, Colby, Mozzarella or a mixture)
1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar

Brown meat and onions, drain and pat into a 9x9 baking dish. Beat remaining ingredients together (except for the last 1/4 cup cheddar--it is for the top.) Pour onto the ground meat and onion. Top with cheddar. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes until golden brown and puffy (a knife will come out clean.)
