Enchilada Casserole with Ground Turkey


Good morning! I don’t do this too often, but I have a recipe to share with you today! I have made it twice now and Bobby loves it. It’s easy, quick, and we usually have leftovers, which is a plus for me….no cooking the next night! I found a variation of it online but changed it up a bit to make it more to my liking. I am really picky and I even like this, so I think it would be a kid favorite as well. I am not a HUGE onion fan so I chop them up really tiny and don’t even notice them.
