What's for dinner? Enchiladas and guacamole

We are starting to meal plan for many reasons: keeps us on budget, easier to plan, no last minute ordering piza or eating out. This is the first week for us to try this, and I'm planning breakfast as well as dinner. B usually takes left overs and I will either pack a wrap from home or eat a work lunch.
Tonight's dinner was using Lawry's Enchilada Sauce and the recipe is from them as well.
3 cups water
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste. (I used sauce since that is all we had)
1 lb ground turkey. (We always use Jennie-O extra lean ground turkey)
2 cups (2%) shredded cheddar cheese
8 corn tortillas
1 package of Spices and Seasonings (Lawry's Enchilada Sauce)
Bring spices and seasonings, water, tomato paste to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered, stirring, 10 mins. Brown ground turkey. Stir in 1 cup of cheese. In 13x9 baking dish, pour 1 cup of sauce. Dip tortillas in remaining sauce, then evenly top with meat mixture. Roll up, then place seam side down in baking dish. Evenly top with remaining sauce. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake an additional 5 minutes.
Benito's (Almost) Famous Guacamole
2 avocados
jalapeno (fresh)
cilantro (fresh)
Mix in food processor and salt to taste.
