Made these for dinner tonight--found similar recipe on MSN.com in honor of Cinco de Mayo but I made a few small changes. WONDERFUL!!! If you let them bake just long enough the edges of the tortillas get a little crispy....mmmmm...

We adore burritos/enchiladas. This is a nice change from the soup based sauces- nice clean taste. My family ate every bite-wanted more. I did add some leftover homemade salsa to the turkey mixture for flavor, but I think would be nice without. Thanks for posting!
