Step 1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Step 2 – In a large frying pan add 3  tablespoons of canola oil.  At low/medium heat cook each tortilla for 5-10 seconds (until flexible, not crispy). Add more oil as needed. Place cooked tortilla on a paper towel to absorb excess oil. Repeat until all tortillas cooked.

Step 3 – Place ground turkey in the empty pan. Add seasoned salt, black pepper and garlic salt . Stir occasionally. Once meat is three-fourth’s cooked, add 1 large handful of spinach. Once that spinach cooks down, add a second large handful.

Step 4 – Chop green onions and set aside

Step 5 – Pour a generous layer of enchilada sauce in baking dish, enough to cover the bottom.

Step 6 – Place a single tortilla on a plate, then add a small amount of enchilada sauce to both sides.  Add a large table spoon of turkey and spinach mix to center of tortilla. Sprinkle a small amount of cheese and green onion too.

Step 7 – Roll up, and place the seamed side face down in baking dish. Repeat until pan is filled.

Step 8 – Pour remaining enchilada sauce evenly over top of enchiladas, then cover with cheese, and garnish with remaining green onion.

Step 9 – Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 mins, until sauce is bubbling and cheese is lightly browned at edges.

Step 10 – Serve and eat. Enjoy!
