A few weeks back my journalism class had a potluck.

I had no idea what I wanted to cook so I needed to do a little research.

After looking at what the other people were bringing I decided on Mexican food. 

Who doesn't love Mexican food? 

After contemplating what type of Mexican food to make I went with enchiladas.

Not just plain enchiladas we're talking fully loaded with ground turkey and cheese. 

If you want to recreate Enchilada goodness print out the recipe below.

That's all for today's post on SSWU check back on what I make for the next potluck!
