This is my vegetarian take on a great recipe -- Cran-Turkey Enchiladas -- that was posted on Zaar by chef #324390!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. FOR THE FILLING: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, then lightly coat a 13"x9" baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl measure out all the filling ingredients & stir together until well blended, then set aside.
  3. Stack the tortillas on a large plate, then spoon 3/4 to 1 cup of the filling onto each tortilla, just off center & about 1 inch from the top & bottom edges.
  4. Roll up each tortilla around the filling, then place, seam side down in the prepared baking dish.
  5. FOR THE SAUCE: In a bowl stir together the cranberry sauce & salsa, mixing well.
  6. Spoon the sauce evenly over the filled tortillas, then cover with a sheet of aluminum foil.
  7. FOR THE CHEESE TOPPING: Bake the enchiladas for 45 minutes, then remove the aluminum foil & sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top.
  8. Return enchiladas to the oven & bake another 5 to 10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
  9. These enchiladas are more easily served when cut in half.

Absolutely scrumptious! I used Paul Newman's Mango Tango salsa which added a bite as well as more sweetness; whatever salsa you choose will dominate the flavor since the recipe calls for so much. Each burrito is quite filling so this really does serve eight and I didn't miss the turkey at all. Something different!

The consensus was these are very unique. There were four of us and half said four star and half said five. DH like saying he enjoyed the mix of sweet and savory. I thought a little more heat perhaps from a pepper would have been helpful. Made as written making a half recipe using smoked chipotle salsa, and fat free cheese. Thanks for the post.

I made a few changes to this, and they were really yummy. I didn't use any cranberry sauce at all, and used regular enchilada sauce that I made. Otherwise, I left all the rest the same. My husband loved them, and he usually doesn't like black beans.
