Turkey Enchiladas

Turkey Enchiladas

We used this recipe in the meat unit in my high school kitchens. I specifically remember going over the more difficult parts of the recipe ahead and being floored at how little they listened. “Mrs. Boyd, I put all the garlic powder in with the meat”. Yes, I talked about that for five minutes...
