Ground Turkey enchiladas

Submitted by: ARTISTKATE

Introduction

Lean ground turkey used for this quick and tasty dish.
I prepare this dish without using the olive oil, I just add water to my skillet when I'm cooking the meat.
Traditional enchilada recipes call for frying the corn tortillas first, but I eliminated this step to significantly reduce the calorie content.
