Healthier Turkey Enchiladas

Even though these turkey enchiladas are "healthier", they are still delicious and cheesy. We chose Oaxaca cheese, which is a semi hard cheese that is similar to Monterey Jack, but melts like mozzarella cheese. It has a mild flavor and goes perfect with the ground turkey and green enchilada sauce.
