How to make it
- Shred the turkey; set aside.
- Heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet; add the onion and garlic; saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour; saute for a few minutes; add the tomatoes and half the stock, stir well. Add the spices and simmer 10 minutes. Add the turkey and enough stock to cover; simmer 15 minutes. Taste; adjust seasonings and add additional stock, if necessary.
- Meanwhile, brush the tortillas with some olive oil; place on a cookie sheet and set in a 325 degree oven until they become pliable, about 2 - 3 minutes. Dip a tortilla into the simmering sauce; place on an individual warmed plate. Using a slotted spoon, fill with a portion of the turkey mixture; roll the tortilla to resemble an enchilada, continue, filling and rolling (2 rolled "tacos" per plate). Once all the tortillas are filled, spoon additional sauce and turkey over the top. Top with shredded lettuce, avocado slices and a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
