    AmyZoe's Note:

    This is a great way to use up leftover turkey after Thanksgiving that you're tired of trying to disguise into an non-turkey meal. I used a green enchilada sauce and omitted the tomatoes, but I've heard other people do a combination of green and red sauce and some say if you are using plum tomatoes to stick with a red sauce. You definitely want to soften the tortillas in oil. This recipe is a winner. Recipe courtesy of Epicurious.com and Bon Appetit November 1998.
