  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place ground turkey in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Stir in green onions, taco seasoning mix, water, diced tomatoes with juice, and green chiles with juice. Reduce heat to medium.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together ricotta and eggs. Place 2 tortillas in the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Spread 1/4 of the ricotta mixture on tortillas. Spoon 1/4 of the meat mixture over the cheese. Repeat layers until all is used up.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until sauce is bubbly. In a small bowl, mix together sour cream and salsa. Serve in a bowl on the side.

Great recipe, I also changed it a bit. The most wonderful change was mashing up an avocado into the ricotta. Turned out a fantastic light green color. Changes I made: Added avocado to the ric...

I've made this several times and will make it many, many, more times - consider it a staple! First, if you're using flour tortillas, take the time while prepping the other ingredients to toast t...

This was, to put it simply "Awful." For the time and effort spent I could of made "Real" lasagna.
