Ground Turkey Enchiladas

We had quite the discussion as I made these. I called them "beef enchiladas." My daughter told me they couldn't possibly be beef enchiladas as there was no beef in them only ground turkey. She insisted they were "turkey enchiladas." In the end, we settled on "ground turkey enchiladas."

2 pounds ground turkey
1/2 onion, chopped
1 small can of corn
4 ounces of sour cream (we used light)
1 small can of diced green chiles
2 cups shredded cheese (we used a 4 cheese mexican blend)
1 can enchilada sauce (we used a red sauce)
flour tortillas

Brown the ground turkey with the onions:

Next, add in the corn and mix together:

Now add in the sour cream and green chiles:

I did this all in the microwave. I heated it through and then mixed in half the cheese:

Line a large casserole dish with enchilada sauce:

Fill your tortillas and place in the dish. Cover with sauce and cheese. I meant to take a photo before I added the cheese and forgot so I stopped after one handful. I used an entire cup of cheese on the top.

Bake, covered at 350 degrees 30-45 minutes.

I love mexican food and so thought these were great. If you like your food spicier, add in diced jalepenos to the meat mixture and use a hot/spicy enchilada sauce.

This reminds me that it's almost been a YEAR since I last made enchiladas! Yikes! It's such an easy, filling meal, I'm going to have to put it on my to-do list. I love those green chiles!

The tortillas were like dough! I should of deep fried them before or something. What a waste! The filling was good though so I think I will just do the tortillas different next time.

I used Corn tortillas warmed in the microwave under a wet papertowel

Although I've never frozen them before, I don't see why not. For freezing, I actually use the throw away casserole dishes. I try to buy them at the 99 cent store.
