Quick Turkey Enchiladas

These Enchiladas are So GOOD!
My whole family (even my little boys) loved them.
I love that you add cheese to the meat mixture, when the cheese melts in the skillet it binds the Turkey together and makes for a great filling.
This is very easy to make and cooks very quickly. I love a quick GOOD meal!
I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Quick Turkey Enchiladas
adapted from America's Test Kitchen

-1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
-1 onion, chopped
-2 garlic cloves, chopped
-1 pound ground turkey
-3 cups of shredded Monterey Jack cheese
-2 10 ounce cans of Red enchilada suace
-1 small can of diced green chilies
-1/2 cup fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper
-10 (6 inch) corn tortillas

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9 by 13 pan with Pam spray.

2. Heat oil in a skillet over high heat. Cook onion until lightly browned, add garlic and cook for about 30 seconds more. Stir in turkey and cook until no longer pink. Add 2 cups of the cheese, 1/2 cup enchilada sauce, green chilies, cilantro, season with salt and pepper to cooked turkey. Heat together on medium heat until all combined.

3. Stack Tortillas on plate, wrap with plastic, and microwave until pliable, about 1 minute. In the middle of each tortilla put about 1/4 cup of the meat mixture then roll tightly. Place seam-side down in pan. After all are rolled, cover with remaining Enchilada sauce and the 1 cup of cheese.

4. Cover with foil and cook for 10 minutes. Remove foil, and cook another 5 minutes.
