This recipe is fabulous! I used fresh deli salsa, all fat-free ingredients, the leanest turkey available, and dark green Romaine lettuce. Be sure to squeeze the spinach dry and chop it up, if you use the whole leaf variety. I also chopped up the salsa, cumin and tomatoes, using a stick blender before pouring over the enchiladas. My husband's eyes got really big when he saw it and he said, "You mean we can eat this and still lose weight?" He thought it was some of the best Mexican style food - and he lived in Mexico for awhile. It was so good, we could hardly stop eating long enough to say yum!! We have both been watching our weight and lost a pound each the next day! Oh my, this was even good cold, when we had some for lunch. One of these filled me up for hours. Love it! I might make more sauce next time.

Nothing special. My Mexican-loving husband refused to eat the leftovers.

Then added frozen spinach & frozen corn, along w/ ff c. cheese. simmered, then filled tortillas. topped burritos w/ a mixture of s. cream & salsa verde (all I had on hand) & the last 10 minutes of cooking covered w/ cheese & more cillantro.

The enchiladas are terrific! My husband couldn't get enough. My cousin also had some and just e-mailed me for the recipe. They were a little time consuming but well worth it. They are yummy!

I think this was really good, but I think I would add a packet of taco seasoning. I thought it was a little bit underseasoned. I layered the tortillas so make a lasagna type dish, and I thought it was really good

This dish was surprised me and my friends! We loved this recipe! My friend was surprised that the filling was ground turkey and not ground beef. The flavor was wonderful.

I thought this recipe was just okay, but my roommate loved it! He wanted more, but I just made two servings! I will be making some adjustments next time, including: taco seasoning, my own salsa instead of the tomato mixture, and maybe a little more cream cheese because they weren't creamy enough for me. It's a very nice recipe, and very easy to modify to suit your likes and dislikes.
