Mom's Diner Enchiladas

I couldn't find a recipe I really liked so I created this from looking at several recipes. Exchange what we liked for what you like, and enjoy!

What you need:
2 lbs turkey burger
2 pkgs taco seasoning, or use your own blend
1 (24 oz) jar of salsa, divided 12oz/12oz
1 large can (32 oz) enchilada sauce
1 T cumin
2 bags shredded mexican blend cheese
flour tortillas - LOTS!
1 can chicken broth
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk ranch salad dressing

What you do (filling/sauce):
Heat enchilada sauce with cumin in seperate saucepan. Set Aside.
Brown meat. Drain. Add taco seasoning.
Put 12 oz salsa to blender and pulse until smooth.
Add all salsa and 1/2 cup enchilada sauce to meat and heat through.
Stir in 1/2 bag (1 cup) cheese. Remove from heat. Set aside.
In shallow skillet, warm broth to simmer.

What you do (assembly line):
Preheat oven to 350°
Spray 11 x 13 pan with non-stick cooking spray, paying special attention to the SIDES of the pan.
Spoon a thin layer of enchilada sauce over the bottom of the pan.
Dip one tortilla in simmering broth to cover both sides.
lay flat and add 1/4 cup meat filling.
Roll tightly and place seam side down in pan.
Continue until pan is full, You will have about 10-12 across and 2 longways down the side, depending on the size of your tortillas. Fit snuggly so they don't unroll.
Spoon heavy layer of enchilada sauce over the top.
Put 1-1 1/2 cups shredded cheese over the top.
Bake for 15 minutes and serve with spanish rice or tex-mex cheesy fries!
