Getting Cheezy with You!
What makes this dish so quick is using store bought enchilada sauce. I make homemade enchilada sauce but sometimes I run out and I am in a rush this is my go to sauce. I have been using this sauce for over twenty years.
Keep the ground turkey moist by using white onion and about 1/4 cup of chicken broth.
Dip heated corn tortilla shells in enchilada sauce then lay flat in a large casserole dish.
Layer corn tortillas overlapping in the bottom of a large casserole dish, top with ground turkey, cheese and repeat, ending with corn tortilla shells.
This is so good, hurry up and make it!
