Reviews forTurkey Enchilada Lasagna
"It was very good. Could of used a little more spice. I would add green chilies next time"
"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."
"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."
"Even my picky eater and his friend loved this one! I doubled everything and only had a few slices left."
"This did not work for me....it was very mushy on the insides and the outside burned."
"Also works great in a large pie plate!"
"This is by far the best enchilada recipe ever. I've made this twice now, ready to make it again. Yummy!"
