Got Turkey? Another Leftover Solution!
Still looking for ways to use up that leftover Thanksgiving turkey? I think it is time to spice things up!
Every time I make these turkey enchiladas they are “gobbled” up in minutes. They are called enchiladas “suizas” because they are topped with swiss cheese and a creamy sauce. A filling is made with leftover turkey, salsa verde, sour cream, and roasted red peppers. You can even make the dish lighter by using reduced-fat sour cream and reduced-fat swiss cheese. I love this recipe because it is great to pop in the oven after a long day of Christmas shopping!
8 corn tortillas, stacked and wrapped in foil
1 jar (16 ounces) Salsa Verde (green salsa)
1/2 cup sour cream (regular or reduced fat)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1-1/2 cups diced cooked turkey
1-1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese (regular or reduced fat)
1 jar (7 ounces) roasted red peppers, sliced
Garnish: Diced tomatoes
Sliced green onion
1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Place wrapped tortillas in oven to warm while preparing rest of ingredients.
2. In a bowl, mix together the salsa, sour cream, and cilantro. Spread 1/2 cup of mixture on the bottom of a 2 to 2-1/2 quart casserole dish.
3. In another bowl, combine the turkey, 1 cup of the cheese, and the roasted peppers.
4. Remove tortillas from oven and make sure they are warmed and pliable. Spoon a scant 1/2 cup of turkey mixture down the center of each tortilla. Roll each up and place seam side down in baking dish. Pour remaining salsa mixture over top.
5. Cover dish with foil and bake for 15 minutes until bubbly. Remove foil and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Bake, uncovered, another 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle tomatoes and green onion down the center. Serve immediately. Serves 4.
