What To Do With That Leftover Turkey



Lots of leftover turkey? It is usually not a problem for my family. Still, when you have had about all the turkey sandwiches you can stand, there are plenty of disguises for the remains of the feast.

The last of the turkey can be used in just about any recipe calling for cooked chicken. For instance, Chicken Enchiladas can be Turkey Enchiladas, Chicken and Dumplings can be Turkey and Dumplings, etc.

Turkey Enchiladas

1 large carton of sour cream

2 large cans of diced, green chiles

1 bunch green onions

turkey pieces, both white and dark, to equal 2 large, boneless chicken breasts

2 dozen flour tortillas

1-2 cups grated cheese

Cut up onions and turkey, add soup, sour cream and most of green chiles. Fill and roll tortillas, place in a baking dish, there will be filling leftover. Top with remaining mixture and grated cheese and remaining chiles. Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Let set for about 5 minutes before serving with refried beans and salsa.
