    TeresaS's Note:

    This is my daughters favorite recipe for leftover turkey. I love it too! Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you. It seems time consuming but it does go together quickly once you have everything ready. I got it out of an old cookbook magazine called Fresh Turkey Ideas. We really look forward to Thanksgiving just to have this as our traditional left over. Hope you enjoy!

      This was really good. My husband made this and followed the directions almost exactly, he added 3 jalapenos instead of just 1 and killed my spanish rice (hehe). We used turkey in our Chilaquiles. Next time I will try to figure something else out with the tortillas because they didn't stay crispy enough for our taste. Also we personally would like to up the spice factor. This will definitely be made again, probably to use up our Thanksgiving turkey. Thanks so much TeresaS. Made for PLEASE REVIEW MY RECIPE SEPT-OCT 2013.

      Very tasty and DH loved it. I made it with Anaheim chilies and left most of the seeds in, I used part mozzarella and Cotja cheese. Will make this all the time.

      I made this earlier this morning, assumeing that there would be some left when I got back from volunteering at the hospital. WRONG !! The 3 of them had the whole thing, they were raving about the green sauce saying that it was not to spicy, but perfect. I did use some thawed turkey for this. They also liked the addition of the onions in it too. The 3 of them said 5 stars all the way. Tagged and made for PRMR tag.
