Turkey Enchiladas

The husband and I decided we wanted to make something easy on Super Bowl Sunday. We stayed in and watched the game (well, he watched the game, I waited for the new Glee episode) since Chad was going to be gone the whole next week for work.

I was ridiculously excited to try this recipe because, really, who doesn’t like enchiladas? These were easy to make, delicious, and this is a great addition to my recipe collection!

Recipe Adapted from Robyn’s Blog!

Turkey Enchiladas


1 lb. ground turkey
1/2 small onion, diced
1/4 cup diced tomatoes with green chilies
1/4 cup of water
taco seasoning (you can make your own! I like this recipe, but add a dash of cayenne pepper)
1 can red enchilada sauce
6-8 whole wheat tortillas
1/2 cup fat free shredded cheese (I used cheddar)


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. While oven is preheating, brown the ground turkey and drain.

2) Add water, onions, tomatoes, and taco seasoning to meat. Simmer for approx. 10 minutes until the mixture has reduced slightly.

3) Spread a little of the enchilada sauce in the bottom of a a 9×13 baking dish.

4) Fill tortillas with meat mixture, roll, and place in baking dish. We ended up with 6 enchiladas.

5) Top with more enchilada sauce (I didn’t use the whole can, but it was pretty close) and cheese. Cover with foil and bake for about 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.


These were really, really good and definitely husband approved! The only change I really made is that I added a little more onion than the original recipe called for. Chad loves onion, and I don’t mind it as long as it’s hidden in things. 🙂
