Tex-Mex Enchiladas

***This post contains affiliate links***
During my meal planning yesterday, I chose to put 2 new recipes in the plan for the week.  Tonight was the night to try one of them.  I got the original recipe from Mr. Food's website.  He called it Tex-Mex Enchiladas.  As I was making them this evening, I changed the recipe a little bit.  This is how I made them.

Tex-Mex Enchiladas, 2 Make Ends Meet Style

*1 cup cubed, cooked turkey
*1 cup cooked, brown rice (my new favorite: EcoLife Quick Cook Organic Brown Basmati
*2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
*dried minced onion (I didn't measure, but shook some into the bowl!)  :)
*1/2 can enchilada sauce
*5 flour tortillas

First of all, my recipe is divided in half from the original.  I did this because I didn't have enough turkey to make the full recipe.  That is also why I used brown rice...to stretch my meat farther!  :)
Mix turkey and rice together.  Add 1 cup of shredded cheese, the onion, and half of the sauce.  Mix together.  Divide this mixture evenly between the tortillas.  Roll up tortilla and place seam side down in a greased 8 X 8 pan.  Pour the remaining sauce on top of tortillas.  Sprinkle one cup of cheese on top of the sauce.

Bake in a 400* oven for 15 to 18 minutes.
