Turkey Enchiladas

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Nursebarb

This is a recipe I have cooked for years for my boys and covered dish events - it usually gets thumbs up from everybody. Unfortunately, I cannot remember where I got it. The cilantro makes the sauce!

I have to admit I was kinda nervouse using raw meat in the filling but this cooked up just fine. My boys liked the spiciness of it (not too much) and I am sure you can add jalapenos to spice it up more. Good basic enchiladas recipe that I will use again. Made for PAC 2008.
