Leftover Turkey Enchiladas


I have leftover turkey that must be used tonight.  My family is tired of sandwiches and the other turkey meals I have been serving so it’s time to pull out the big guns, enchiladas.  We love enchiladas!!!!  They are an oft requested meal but unless I have leftover chicken it doesn’t appear on the table.  The leftover turkey is the perfect excuse for enchiladas.  Best of all I shredded all of the turkey and doubled the recipe.  The extras will be frozen and pulled out when they are requesting enchiladas and I don’t feel like making them.

The enchiladas are easy to make and adaptable.  Adjust the amount of cheese and salsa to suit your family.  I always have salsa on the table so those of us that like extra heat can add it.  Add some rice and a salad and you have a complete meal.  Oh, they are great warmed up as lunch too!!
