  • Wooden spoon


  • 1 lb. ground turkey, lean
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans
  • 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp. enchilada seasoning* recipe in notes below
  • 1 (28 oz.) can red enchilada sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 9 flour tortillas


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. In a sauté pan or skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil over medium heat. Add in the diced onion, garlic, jalapeño, salt and pepper and cook for ~5 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Add in the ground turkey and cook until no longer pink. Add in the enchilada seasoning, diced tomatoes and black beans. Stir to combine. Pour ~ 1 cup of the red enchilada sauce down in a 9x13 inch oven safe baking dish.
  • Scoop the filling in the tortillas and roll them up. I add ~1/2 cup of the filling in each enchilada. Pour more enchilada sauce over the enchiladas so they are covered. Sprinkle 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese on top.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cheese has melted and is bubbly. Let enchiladas cool slightly before serving. Serve with your favorite enchilada toppers: salsa, avocado, red onion, more cheese, etc.



Enchilada seasoning (makes about 3 Tbsp. of seasoning)
  • 1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
  • 2 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Mexican Oregano
  • 1 tsp. Coriander
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
If you don't have these seasonings on hand, use 1 oz. taco seasoning packet.
