Out of sheer desperation to make "thanksgiving leftover" food despite my complete lack of thanksgiving leftovers, I bought a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to make this. It came out SO good--I doubled the recipe to make 8 enchiladas and used stir-fried peppers and onions as the vegetables. I topped it with enchilada sauce, cheese and freshly diced tomatoes. It was exactly what I was looking for--thanks so much for posting, Anme!
I made this as a casserole rather than individual enchiladas and used green enchilada sauce and about 1/4 cup mild salsa layering in a casserole dish. I sauteed green bell peppers and onions as the veggies. It turned out great and my kids ate it up because it didn't taste like the same old turkey!
I've been instructed to make these every year after Thanksgiving. Thanks for a great turkey leftover dish.
Amne a real winner here. I needed something swift for lunch and I could jack up the heat the bit ~ and this was it! I had some leftover chicken from the previous day, so this made it super simple to throw together. For the cooked vegetables I used sliced onion, jalanpeno's, and garlic. I didn't have a Mexican cheese so I used my regular mild cheddar cheese. I also had tomato and fresh cilantro that I added to the top. I also browned the tortilla's on top of the burner for 3 seconds each side, filled them and served them. That easy and done! Thank you so much, Anme!
I will definitely be keeping this recipe for leftover chicken or turkey. Hubby and I really enjoyed these and they were very filling. Thanks Anme!
Wow! These were so good! I wanted to use up some more of my leftover turkey and corn and this worked out so well. For the veggies, I used leftover fresh cut corn and some chopped jalapeno slices I had in my fridge. I used Paul Newman's Cilantro & Lime mild salsa. A great recipe, delicious.
DEEEEElisious. Made it with leftover chicken and green beens. Didn't have any cummin so I loaded it up with extra chili powder and about 4 dashes of hot sauce for a little extra zip. Had my own homemade tortilla shells Flour Tortillas (Sun-Dried Tomato, Red Bell Pepper, Garlic &. I used a mixture of medium cheddar and mozerella. This one is a keeper.
We made this with left over Thanksgiving turkey and it was a nice change from more turkey, turkey, turkey. In the end, though, it was still turkey so only 4 stars from us but thanks for a new way to use our leftovers before they went into the freezer!
