This recipe has become a family tradition. After Christmas when there is leftover turkey this is one of the dishes I make. Serve this with Spanish rice and a side salad for a satisfying meal.

Made this as a quick toss together meal for after church today. The flavor is very tasty. The only trouble I had was with the filling as it became very soupy during the baking period which caused the tortilla strips to get all soggy and mushy. I will have to make it again and see if I can alter it a bit in order to preserve the tortillas a bit better. Thanks Paula I will add this to my busy day recipe stash.
