Are you overflowing with Turkey Leftovers? Tired of the sandwiches already? These Super Easy Turkey Enchiladas can be prepared in a few minutes and mixed up with different sides until you find your favorite flavors. My friends over at Mangia TV are having a leftover recipe contest. You know I am sending these over! But it ends tomorrow 12.5.2014 so I need to hurry! They always have something fun going on over there. If you have time, check them out.
I love red potatoes in my enchiladas so while I could have used some of the mashed it just was not going to do it for me. Red potato enchiladas are actually my favorite! Yum, just drowning in red sauce and sour cream! So adding some turkey to this recipe was easy. The fact that I smoke my turkey just adds to the flavor of a great enchilada. I get a little crazy with the garnish sometimes. Adding jalapenos, tons of sour cream, some cilantro and even more diced onions makes it mega fantastic. I have loved black olives since I was 2 years old. While most people might garnish with 2-3 black olives, I might get caught with six or seven on my plate. Ok maybe 15-20. WHAT?!?! Back off me. Back in 2012 I made Easy Enchiladas with Smoked Turkey but in a very different way. My kids like it better that way.
When making these it is going to get messy. filling is going to fall out. Tortillas are going to rip. Don’t work about it. This dish is very forgiving and served like a casserole. Dish it up with a large spoon and cut in wherever you want. The way I made it (aside from the stuffing shown on the side) was Gluten Free.
- 1 16oz Can Refried Black Beans
- 1 28oz Can Red Enchilada Sauce
- 1 Can El Pato Salsa de Jalapeno - if you can't find this, some red sauce works too.
- 1/2 Yellow Onion - diced
- 2 cups chopped Leftover Turkey
- 3 Cups Potatoes (Fried Red or Mashed)
- 2 Cup -Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- Corn Tortillas -I use white corn usually
- Black Olives
- Sour Cream
- Salsa or Extra Red Sauce
- In a bowl mix chopped leftover turkey, refried black beans, diced onion, El Pato sauce and potatoes. Gently mix together. Coat casserole dish with butter. (or non-stick spray) Lay corn tortillas flat, add filling and roll, add to casserole dish. Continue doing this until dish is filled. Pour Sauce over the top then sprinkle the cheese all over the top.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling. For a final touch I like to turn the broiler on and place it under there while watching closely until the corners just crisp up and then take it out to serve.
- Garnish with Sour Cream, Black Olives. If needed add some salsa or extra red sauce.
- You can add/replace ingredients with stuffing, ham, green beans. Have fun with it. More cheese is good too. Can you ever have too much cheese? If I have a lot of leftovers I will even add a second layer. I just like to add sauce and cheese in between each layer which would mean more cheese and enchilada sauce. My turkey was smoked which I think makes a great enchilada filling. Sometimes I set aside some more diced onion for garnish, chopped peppers or jalapenos.
