This is a keeper! This made 8 enchiladas. My 2 yr old even liked the filling. I used wheat tortillas, & added chili powder & seasonings for a little spice.

Used green enchilada sauce and substituted an Anaheim pepper for the green pepper.

This was pretty good. When I was eating it, I forgot I was eating turkey (instead of ground beef) and forgot that it was wheat tortillas instead of white. Overall, it was quite good for a "healthy" dish.

Very fast and hearty meal. Great to take to a potluck.

Our favorite healthy cooking recipe. I have substituted ground chicken for the turkey and it turned out just as good. Also, both times I've made it, I only got 7 enchiladas, not eight.
