MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 31, 2014

I love this recipe, it is so easy to make. As a variant to the original recipe, I spread fat free refried beans on the second and fourth tortilla in addition to the original ingredients. I also add about a teaspoon of chili powder to the ground turkey mixture, gives it a little extra "kick"!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 17, 2013

I've made this recipe twice now as is and it was a hit with my guys. You could do a lot of additions and be creative by adding other ingredients such as chopped green chilies or diced peppers and onions, black olives, beans-either black or kidney, beef or shredded chicken or turkey instead of ground turkey, or even substitute the tomato sauce for enchilada sauce. The meat can be cooked in a microwave instead of a skillet for even more convenience and time saving.
