Recipe: Layered Turkey Enchiladas

Layered Turkey Enchiladas

1 pound cooked turkey or chicken, shredded
2 (4 ounce) cans diced green chiles
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can Cream of Chicken Soup
6 corn tortillas
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In medium bowl, combine turkey, green chiles, and Cream of Chicken Soup.  Mix well.  In lightly greased 13x9 inch baking dish, spread 1/2 cup of turkey mixture.  Arrange 3 tortillas over top.  Spread 1/2 of remaining turkey mixture over tortillas.  Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese over top.  Arrange 3 tortillas over cheese.  Spread remaining turkey mixture over tortillas.  Sprinkle 1 cup cheese over top.  Bake 45 minutes or until cheese starts to brown.  Makes 6 servings.

Note:  If you like your enchiladas to be spicy, swap out one or both of the cans of green chile for diced Jalapeno peppers.
We had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving!  After the coma inducing meal, we went to our friends David and Debra's house for pie.  I took the Frozen Harvest Pie, and got thumbs up from everyone who tried it.  Spending time with family and friends is one of the things I love about Thanksgiving.

Typically when people talk about using leftover turkey, they talk about soup or sandwich recipes.  I think it is fun to take leftovers and turn them into a totally different and unexpected meal.  When it comes to leftover Thanksgiving turkey, the above Enchilada recipe and my Green Chile Chicken Pasta recipe, are two of the dishes my family request that I make.

My friends Bo (Bo's Bowl), and Pam (Pam's Midwest Kitchen Korner), put there own twist on the Green Chile Chicken Pasta dish.  Check out their blogs to take a look at their versions.  I love to see how people take my recipes and put their own personality in them!
