1 ½ cup pepper jack cheese - shredded
1 28 oz. Can of enchilada sauce
1 15 oz. Can of black beans - drained and rinsed
2.25 oz. Can of olives - drained and rinsed
½ cup of sliced and pickled jalapeños (optional)
1. Heat medium saucepan pan on medium high heat with oil.
2. Add onion with a pinch of salt and sauté until beginning to soften, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes.
3. Mix salt, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne peper, chilli powder, and paprika together in a small bowl, set aside.
4. Add ground turkey to onion, and cook until beginning to brown, about 8 minutes, stirring frequently, and using your spoon or spatula to mash the turkey into small pieces.
5. Add garlic and seasoning, cook 2 minutes.
6. Reduce heat to low, and fold in black beans, cook additional 2 minutes, set aside.
7. Preheat oven to 350°

9. Add about a cup of enchilada sauce into a medium bowl.
10. Warm a few tortillas in the microwave at a time, about 15 seconds, just to soften them enough to roll without tearing.
11. Dip a softened tortilla into the sauce in the bowl, lay on a plate for assembly, and add about 3 tbsp. Of the cooked turkey and bean mixture, roll, and place seam side down in one of the baking dishes. Repeat until all turkey mixture and tortillas are gone.
