turkey enchiladas with tomato sauce

happy décimo de mayo! i planned to post this earlier this week to celebrate what most people in the US think is mexican independance day, but in fact a day that only holds significance as a victory for the mexican army over the french in 1862.

but i digress... i was so inspired that i didn't make one round of enchiladas, i made two! the first one used tomato sauce and i decided to change things up as well and try using ground turkey instead of chicken or beef and from the few reviews by others, it was an appropriate choice. here are the results for round 1 (as you can tell, i was too hungry to wait for the photo to get taken).

canola oil
pinch, mustard seed
pinch, peppercorns
1/2 medium white onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 lb. taco-seasoned ground turkey
ginger, minced
chili powder
lemon juice
3 cans, tomato sauce
2 cans, diced green chilis
worcestershire sauce
sriracha sauce
6 large wheat tortillas
3 green onions
1 lb. cheddar cheese, shredded
sour cream

- pour canola oil in pan and put mustard seed and peppercorns in on medium heat
- add white onion, garlic and ginger and saute on medium heat
- add turkey and cook till lightly browned
- preheat oven to 350°
- on medium-low heat, add in green chilis, chili powder, worcestershire, sriracha, lemon juice and salt
- add 1 1/2 cans of tomato sauce to pan, stir thoroughly then put on low heat
- spoon mixture into large tortilla, add spoonful of salsa; sprinkle cheese on top, roll flour tortilla up and place in a large, greased casserole pan; repeat process 5 more times
- put sour cream on top of enchiladas to your desire, pour rest of the tomato sauce and remainder of cheddar cheese; add chopped green onions on top
- cover with tinfoil and bake for 30 minutes in oven
