Fast & Easy Dinner: Layered Turkey Enchiladas

Fast & Easy Dinner: Layered Turkey Enchiladas

Can't wait for Thanksgiving? This Tex-Mex-style meal is for you! It uses classic Thanksgiving ingredients to create a lasagna-like dish. Turkey is tossed with stir-fried vegetables, enchilada sauce, and cranberry sauce. The mixture is layered with cheese between corn tortillas before being baked until crisp and gooey. This dish is also a great way to transform leftovers. Feel free to substitute chicken for the turkey, if that's what you have on hand. To look at the recipe,

Yeah, I think I'd also leave off the cranberry and add sour cream.

I've had turkey casserole with cranberry sauce in it before and it was good, but I'm a little uncertain about combining that further into cheese enchiladas. I usually shred the leftover turkey and make rolled enchiladas w/ a spinach cream sauce on top.

I had a variation of this growing up. No cranberry. Sliced black olives, green onions and cilantro. Fast and easy.

it's so funny - ask me a few years ago and i wouldn't have gone near an enchilada - meant or no meat, but now i'm much more open to mexican style food so it's a great thing. being a vegetarian, i'd have to pass on the thanksgiving essence of this, but i still love the concept and might have to print and bring this recipe with me to my fiance's family's house this year since they love their tex mex and i think that it could serve as a great leftover application to the turkey dinner.
