  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

Instructions

  1. Set a large skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil and turkey. Brown turkey until cooked through. Add garlic and cook one more minute.

  3. Pour 2 to 3 tablespoons of enchilada sauce into the bottoms of 4 individual casserole dishes (alternatively you can use one large casserole dish).
  4. Place a tortilla into each casserole dish. Divide turkey & cheese mixture evenly amongst the dishes. Pour more enchilada sauce on top of the meat before topping with another tortilla.
  5. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce over the top tortilla in each dish. Top with the remaining cheese.
  6. Place casserole dishes onto a sheet pan and bake for 20 minutes until hot and bubbly. Top with the cilantro and scallions before serving.
