So quick and easy and not the typical recipes for leftover turkey. Made exactly by the recipe but next time I will purchase a jar of enchilada sauce and might spice it up a little more. Also will add some refried beans. Did I mention, it is very good.
Never would have thought of making enchiladas this way, but I'm glad I tried it. Shredding the turkey was a great way to get the flavors blended together. I had a couple of fresh poblanos which I roasted, peeled and chopped into the mix with a little cumin and some green onion. That upped the flavor a lot, but also the heat, so I skipped the spicy green salsa I had purchased and just topped it with some medium Pace picante. I'd like to try it again without the poblanos, and putting a better salsa on top. Very easy to put together.
Whipped this recipe up quickly with leftover smoked turkey, and Harry & David Garlic Salsa. My husband and 4 y/o son loved it! Baked it with extra cheese on top, and omitted the salt. Another one to add to My Recipe File.
I have been making this recipe for years. I use chicken if I don't have turkey. My family likes spicy food so I add serano chile to the sause on top. I make the enchiladas smaller so I get at least 2 dozen. Try this recipe, your family and friends will love it!
