  • Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground turkey and onion; cook until turkey is no longer pink and onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in cumin and chipotle. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Stir in 1 cup Oaxaca cheese.

  • Spread 1/4 cup enchilada sauce in the prepared baking dish. Divide turkey mixture evenly among tortillas. Tightly roll tortillas and nestle, seam sides down, in the baking dish. Top with remaining sauce and remaining 1/2 cup cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until sauce is bubbly and cheese is melted, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, coarsely chop 1 tablespoon pepitas; mix with cilantro, green onion, garlic, and lime zest in a small bowl. Sprinkle topping over the enchiladas; add with remaining pepitas before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can use Chihuahua cheese instead of Oaxaca.

I made this using the recipe in the magazine I got today. It calls for 6 oz shredded Oaxaca or Chihuahua cheese. I don't see it listed above. It is delicious! Read More

Ive made 3 times. Big hit with my husband and son. Quick, easy and very delicious. I used burrata cheese instead of the Mexican cheese once because I couldn’t find the Mexican cheese. We used flour tortillas once because that’s what we had. Stick with corn tortillas. Flour tortillas made it mushy. The cilantro, pe pitas and lime topping is key. Recommend! Read More

These enchiladas were excellent. I followed the recipe closely, only needing to substitute the cheese with cotija. They are light, yet filling and I agree with the previous reviewer who said that the fresh topping makes it outstanding. Read More
