  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 dried chiles de árbol peppers
  • 1 cup white onion, finely diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 3 cups chopped tomato
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 3 cups cooked turkey, chopped
  • 2 cups Monterrey Jack cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Sufficient oil, for frying the tortillas
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • Freshly chopped cilantro


  • 1
    Start by pre-heating the oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    To make the salsa, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a skillet. When ready, sauté the garlic and onion for three minutes. Then add the dried chiles (without the stem), tomatoes and cumin. Cook for 20 minutes or until the chiles have softened.
  • 3
    In a food processor or blender, process the chile mixture with the chicken broth. Pour half of the blended salsa over the chopped turkey and reserve the remaining sauce in a separate bowl.
  • 4
    Pre-heat the oil for frying in another skillet and lightly fry each tortilla, without browning too much. Place the finished tortillas over a few paper towels to remove any excess oil.
  • 5
    To assemble the enchiladas, dip each tortilla into the remaining salsa. Fill each tortilla with about four tablespoons of the prepared turkey before rolling up. Grease a baking dish with anti-stick spray and place the rolled tortillas inside. Pour the remaining salsa on top and sprinkle with the grated cheese.

    Bake the enchiladas for 25 minutes and garnish with freshly chopped cilantro before serving.
