  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1/2 tbsp oil

Instructions How To Make Turkey Enchiladas

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and ground turkey. Cook, stirring periodically, for 7 minutes, or until the turkey is cooked (no longer pink).
  3. Add green peas, cumin, chili powder and minced garlic. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  4. Add chopped cilantro and 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese and stir.
  5. Put tomato sauce in a bowl. Pour water into the can from the tomato sauce, then add water to the tomato sauce in a bowl. Mix, so the tomato sauce is mixed with water.
  6. Pour 1/2 cup of the tomato sauce on the bottom of a non-stick 8×12 baking dish.
  7. Assemble the enchiladas: heat the corn tortillas in the microwave 3 at a time for 20 seconds. Divide the turkey mixture into 12 parts, put one part of turkey mixture in the center of tortilla and roll into a roll. Put the rolled enchiladas side by side in a baking dish.
  8. Pour the remaining tomato sauce over the enchiladas. Sprinkle the enchiladas with remaining shredded cheese.
