Ground Turkey Enchiladas

What’s the inspiration?

I love enchiladas!  It is a dish I make at least a couple times a month if not weekly.  It is quick, easy and a fantastic weeknight dinner.  Best part, we have leftovers for lunch the next day!  I typically make enchiladas with whatever I have on hand – ground beef, turkey or chicken, green or red enchilada sauce, green chiles or jalapeños, etc.  I experiment quite a bit with different combinations and below is my all time favorite, at least so far.  Give it a try and don’t be afraid to shake it up into your own variation.  This can also be used as a chip dip, which tastes great!

What you need:

  • ½ cup white onion diced
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic (jarred or fresh)
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2 cups shredded Cheese (Mexican or Colby Jack Blend)
  • 1 small can green chiles
  • 1 can green enchilada sauce
  • 10 Corn tortillas

What you do:

  • Heat oven to 350
  • Grease 9 x 13 pan
  • In pan over medium heat, sauté onion & garlic until soft
  • Add ground turkey and brown
  • Add cumin, paprika, salt & pepper
  • Remove from heat & drain
  • Add in 1 cup shredded cheese, green chiles and 1/2 can green enchilada sauce
  • Heat corn tortillas in microwave for 45 seconds until pliable
  • Scoop filling into corn tortillas and roll up seam side down.
  • Top with remainder of green Chile sauce and shredded cheese
  • Cook in 350 oven uncovered for 20 minutes
  • Serve with Sour Cream
