How To Make Ground Turkey Enchiladas

Ingredients needed

  • Ground turkey
  • Onion
  • Galric
  • Enchilada sauce
  • Pinto beans
  • Green chilis
  • Flour tortillas
  • Shredded cheese
  • Cilantro (optional garnish)

Quick tips before starting

  • I suggest buying more than one can of enchilada sauce to your personal preference. The tortillas are not swimming in sauce, they are only covered across the top. So, if you’re a huge fan a like a ton of red enchilada sauce then purchase two cans.
  • Flour tortillas are what you need for this recipe. Unless you’re hand making the corn tortillas the store bought versions would be terrible to use for this.

Making the ground turkey enchiladas recipe

  1. First, prep all the ingredients. Dice the onion, mince the garlic and prep the canned ingredients as well.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  3. Now, in a skillet you’ll need to brown the ground turkey. Once the turkey is cooked remove from pan.
  4. Next, add in the onion, garlic and green chilies, season with cumin. Cook until soft and fragrant.
  5. Add back in the ground turkey but also add the beans and enchilada sauce in as well.
  6. Mix everything for about 2 minutes so that it is hot. Lastly, add in a cup of shredded cheese. Taste for salt and pepper at this point before wrapping them.
  7. In a 16×9 baking dish spread a little sauce across the bottom. Then, lay the tortillas as you make the flap-side down so they stay close. You can place them close together as well.
  8. Lay out the flour tortillas then spoon in the filling. Not so much you can roll the tortilla up. It doesn’t need to be perfect because you’ll lay them flap-side down.
  9. Pour the rest of the sauce across the tops of the tortillas. Then add cheese and place them into the oven. Allow them to bake 20 minutes or until cheese is melted then remove.
  10. Lastly, allow to cool a it then serve.
