Tips and Tricks

Preparing the Filling

Ensure the turkey is cubed into small, bite-sized pieces for easier wrapping and even distribution within the tortillas. You can also use shredded turkey if you prefer a different texture.

Enhancing Flavor

Add some spices like cumin, chili powder, or smoked paprika to the turkey-bean mixture for an extra burst of flavor. This will enhance the taste and give your enchiladas a more robust flavor profile.

Tortilla Handling

To make the tortillas easier to fold and prevent them from cracking, warm them in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds or until they are pliable.

Baking Dish Preparation

Spray the baking dish with a bit of non-stick cooking spray before placing the enchiladas in it. This prevents sticking and makes cleanup easier.

Cheese Topping

For a golden-brown and slightly crispy cheese topping, remove the foil during the last 5 minutes of baking. This allows the cheese to brown and add a delightful texture.

Serving Suggestions

Serve the enchiladas with a side of Spanish rice or a simple green salad. Garnish with fresh cilantro, a dollop of fat-free sour cream, and a squeeze of lime for added freshness and flavor.

Leftover Storage

Store any leftover enchiladas in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat in the microwave or oven until warmed through.
