Obviously, making everything from scratch is the better way to go. However, this recipe is already labor intensive enough that skipping a few corners helps preserve your sanity. Does not prevent it from being delicious.
-2 lbs turkey burger
-12 oz can of refried beans
-small jar or can of chipotle and/or southwest flavored salsa
-1 medium onion, chopped
-3 cubanelle peppers, chopped
-6 oz can of green chilies
-24 oz can of enchilada sauce
-shredded cheddar cheese
-whole wheat tortilla shells
-chili powder, cumin, coriander, garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste
Generously season the meat and brown in a pan. Set aside and preserve liquid. Fry the onions and cubanelles in the liquid until the onions begin to brown. Mix the meat, onions, and peppers and set aside. Put the beans and salsa in a pot and slowly heat while stirring generously. Set aside. Put the enchilada sauce and green chilies in a pot and slowly heat while stirring generously. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. In a non-stick pan, add the meat to the shells and add a layer of the beans/salsa mix. Wrap tightly. Do this with enough shells so that the enchiladas are packed in. Pour the sauce over the top and layer with cheese. Bake until heated throughout and the cheese is melted.
