Turkey Enchiladas

Not the most photogenic meal, but it tasted good!

I love enchiladas, its become one of my go to meals when I just don’t know what to make. Thankfully my pantry is usually stocked with the necessities so I really can “go to” it without too much difficulty. What’s great about making these is you can change it up every time, depending on what you have on hand. It makes great leftovers too!
I think the key when using ground turkey is to make sure you really season it up. I’m always adding garlic and onion to it, plus whatever spices suit your tastes. Adding the refried beans directly to the meat really bulks this filling up. I use the vegetarian refried beans to cut the fat some more. Throw in some veggies and you have a meal all in one!

  2. Oh my, those look so yummy! I think it photographed beautifully as now I am craving mexican food. I would be making a midnight trip to snack on these.

  3. Hi Aggie! I saw your blog yesterday on the foodie blogroll and then saw it again today on Picky Palate’s sidebar so I had to come for a visit. I guess you must be a Texas or Arizona Aggie instead of Utah State like me? Or is it possible that there are more Aggies besides the ones I listed, I don’t follow sports!

    Anyway, great blog. You have a lot of really good ideas on here.
