Food Friday: Enchilada Suizas con Turquia

Here is another way to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers. Spice them up with this enchilada recipe!

Enchilada Suizas con Turquia

Chopped turkey meat
Green (Verde) Enchilada Sauce
Diced onion
Corn or flour tortillas
Swiss or Monterey Jack cheese - grated
Sour cream
Refried beans
Slice of green pepper for garnish

This is a leftovers recipe. Ingredient quantities need not be measured.  Adjust them to personal preference.

Combine chopped turkey and onion with enough green enchilada sauce to allow extra sauce for smothering rolled enchilada.  Simmer until meat is warm and onions are tender.

Assemble enchiladas by placing about 1/3 to 1/2 cup filling in center of tortilla.  If using corn tortillas, fry them briefly in vegetable oil to avoid tearing. Add grated cheese and roll tortilla.  Place on oven safe dinner plate.  Drizzle generous portion (about 1/3 cup) of green sauce over enchilada.  Add a serving of refried beans to the plate and sprinkle with more cheese.  Place in 350° oven until cheese is melted.

Garnish with sour cream and pepper slices. 

Serve with green salad, chips, and salsa!
