    rochsann's Note:

    A post-Thanksgiving must in my house! The original recipe, from Douglas Reese in "The Best of Company at 8" cookbook, calls for 1 pound lean ground turkey, which is probably very good, but I've only made it with 2 cups of leftover roasted turkey instead. His also calls for a 4-ounce can of diced green chiles that I omit (young children, you know). Topped with low-fat sour cream and black olives, it is one of my favorite meals.

      Very good and pretty healthy to boot!I used ground turkey and added the can of green chiles. Drained the turkey after cooking, then cooked some more of the liquid out before rolling in tortillas. This would be really good with leftover turkey, ground beef, chicken, whatever. I heartily suggest Texas Red Enchilada Sauce #42094 (I used the whole recipe in this dish)which was fabulous and helped make a very flavorful meal. Thanks, rochsann, for another keeper!
