It's My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To... Not That I Do...

Good evening bloggers. I'm sorry about my delay with posting this entry. I do have a very good excuse. Care to hear it? It's my Birthday! Yes, I turned 22 today and couldn't have asked for a better day. It was filled with my loving family and friends and many, many Birthday wishes. So, considering the day, I have chosen a down-home, Southern comfort food as a Birthday dish. Let's head into the kitchen and celebrate!

Birthday Turkey Enchiladas

You will need:

  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • 1 sliced onion
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 can enchilada sauce
  • cheese
  • Cilantro
  • Tortillas

  1. Brown the turkey in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the taco seasoning before it finishes browning.
  3. Once the turkey is cooked, moved it to a plate. 
  4. Cook the onion until it turns soft. 
  5. Once the onion is soft, return the turkey to the skillet, adding the tomato and black beans, making sure to  mix everything together. 
  6. Grease a 9x13 pan. 
  7. Take a flour tortilla in your hand and pour in some of the meat mixture. 
  8. Add a sprinkle of cheese, and wrap up the enchilada and put it in the pan. 
  9. Repeat until all of the mixture is gone.
  10. Pour enchilada sauce over the top and cover with foil.
  11. Place the pan in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until it's bubbly. 
  12. Remove the foil and sprinkle cheese on top and put it back in the oven to melt the cheese.
  13. Sprinkle the top with cilantro and enjoy!

I hope you enjoy the rest of this very short evening. I sure enjoyed today. Thank you for bearing with my lateness. I will see you all tomorrow! Happy Blogging!
