Ground Turkey Enchiladas with Red Sauce



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. adjust oven rack to middle top
  2. Drizzle 2 tablespoons oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk the flour together and allow to bubble for 1 minute. Pour in the red sauce, broth, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp of both salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring every once in awhile, until sauce has thickened.
  3. In another large sauce pan, heat 2 Tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Add the diced shallots and sauté for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the ground turkey, chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, paprika, oregano, a generous pinch of salt and pepper and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the turkey is cooked. Mix in the garlic and diced green chilies and saute 30 seconds. Stir in the beans and olives and mix until evenly combined. Remove pan from heat and set aside.
  4. To assemble evenly spread 1/2 cup of the sauce in the bottom of a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Lay out a tortilla on a plate and spread 1-2 tablespoons of sauce over the tortilla. Put a generous spoonful of the ground turkey mixture in a line down the center of the tortilla, then sprinkle with cheese. Roll up tortilla and place in baking dish (seam side down). Assemble the rest of the enchiladas. Then spread any remaining sauce evenly over the top of the enchiladas, followed by any extra cheese.
  5. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, until the enchiladas are cooked through and the tortillas are slightly crispy on the outside. Enjoy with your favorite toppings!
