Reviews for Turkey Enchilada Lasagna

"We made this one with ground pork instead of turkey and used white corn tortillas. It was amazing. It is simple and oh so good."
"My husband wants it with corn tortillas next time. Also I didn't really stick to the meat guidelines. I like to mass cook hamburger meat so I just pulled out what I thought would be enough. I will definitely be adding more meat next time. I have big guys to feed. This was extremely easy to throw together though. Great for any night I am rushed with homework and kids."
"Loved this recipe! I substituted lean ground beef sirloin for ground turkey and it tasted great. Very hearty and filling. I agree with another reviewer that you could not tell the cream cheese was fat-free."
"This was a very good healthier option - very creamy, you couldn't even tell it was fat-free cream cheese! The only thing I might do different is half the recipe, as we were only cooking for two, but it still tasted good leftover."
