  • 9x13 Inch Baking Dish
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Medium Saucepan


  • 2 cups cooked turkey shredded
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder optional
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese divided
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 4 ounces diced green chilis 1 can, drained
  • 1 teaspoon dried cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan using non-stick cooking spray.
  • Mix cooked turkey, chili powder (optional) and 1 cup of Monterey Jack cheese together. Roll up in tortillas and place in pan.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter, stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add broth and whisk until smooth. Heat over medium heat until thick and bubbly.
  • Stir in sour cream, can of chilies, cilantro, onion powder, garlic powder, and pepper.
  • **Be sure that you don't bring this to a boil- you don't want to have curdled sour cream!
  • Pour over enchiladas and top with remaining cheese.
  • Bake 20-22 minutes and then place under high broil for 3 min to brown the cheese.


You could definitely make this recipe using ground turkey. Before adding them to the enchiladas, be sure to cook the meat all the way through. I also prefer to rinse and drain my ground turkey, after cooking it, just to get rid of access grease and fat.
