Ground Turkey Enchiladas

This Ground Turkey Enchiladas recipe is one of my favorites! What makes this recipe so special, is the homemade red enchilada sauce! Making your enchilada sauce homemade makes it taste so much better than using something out of the can! I have also snuck in a little extra veggies into these enchiladas, to keep them on the healthy side! Make it with me!

Other than a classic cheese enchilada, this is my next favorite flavor! I love using ground turkey because I can buy it extra lean. Sometimes I get sick of using chicken in recipes and to be honest with you, I don't love chicken. I do love ground turkey! You could also substitute the ground turkey in this recipe for ground beef if you are not a ground turkey fan!
