This shortcut take on enchiladas skips filling and rolling tortillas in favor of a freeform skillet dish. Diced cheese adds gooey pockets throughout the pan, without needing a huge amount, making the meal feel decadent, but not heavy.



  1. Preheat the oven to 450˚ F. Stack the tortillas and cut into 8 triangles each (or just tear them). Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake, stirring once, until crisp and lightly browned around the edges, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until mostly cooked through, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin, chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper and cook until the meat is fully cooked, well coated and browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the frozen riced vegetables and canned chiles and cook until the vegetables are tender and the skillet is dry, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  3. Add the baked tortillas and enchilada sauce to the skillet and toss to combine. Stir in half the cheese, then top with the remaining cheese. Bake until bubbly around the edges and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes. Top with the cilantro.
