This delicious and easy recipe is perfect for when you want classic enchilada flavors without the hassle of rolling and assembling them. In this casserole we layer flavorful turkey and enchilada sauce with monterey jack cheese and corn tortillas. The casserole is then roasted until the layers meld and the cheese is melty. Note: We do not recommend using ground turkey breast, as it is too lean.
