Terrific Turkey Enchiladas

This recipe is from Taste of Home. I made it Friday night with a few revisions and we really enjoyed it. It also heated up well the next day. Instead of ground turkey I used some turkey lunch meat from Costco that needed to be used up. I simply chopped it into small pieces and added it after the onions were about done. I also did not use the cornmeal. I thought that would make it to dry. Hubby said it was a keeper so thought I would share.
