Turkey Enchiladas

Turkey Enchiladas

We had a big turkey dinner this past weekend, which left us with a lot of leftovers. More than I thought there would be! I had scheduled a Mexican food night for New Years Eve, so I stuck with that, but added a twist with some leftover turkey. We had delicious Turkey Enchiladas.

I pretty much just threw in whatever I had on hand. 1 can of enchilada sauce, a can of black beans, chopped up onion and the turkey. I used both white and dark meat, which made for interesting textures.

I stuffed the flour tortillas with the meat mixture, rolled them up and covered them with shredded Mexican cheese.

I baked the Enchiladas for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. They were amazing! I love to add hot sauce to everything, which I did, for a nice spicy twist. This was a super easy meal to make. I used up some of the leftovers and everyone enjoyed a fantastic home-cooked meal.

1 cup cut-up turkey meat
1 can Enchilada sauce
1 onion, chopped
1/2 can black beans
1-2 cups Mexican shredded cheese
Flour tortillas

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the turkey meat, 3/4 can of Enchilada sauce, onion and black beans in a skillet, heat until boiling. Then let simmer on low for about 5-10 minutes. Stirring often. Grease a casserole dish. Place a cup of the meat mixture in a flour tortilla, add a handful of cheese. Roll up the tortilla and place in casserole dish. Repeat until dish is full and mixture is gone. A throw the extra meat mixture on top of the tortillas if there’s any left. Cover the tortillas with the rest of the Enchilada sauce. Cover with cheese. Bake for 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, serve with some nice tortilla chips or refried beans. Enjoy!

    […] So, one lesson learned from Spending Freeze 2015, is that planning is key. Right now, I’m going to figure out my meals for the week and it will probably rely heavily on turkey. My friend Amanda has a recipe for enchiladas and I’ve made them with chicken. They were delish! I’ll use up the rest of my homemade enchilada sauce with this later in the week. https://cookingwithamanda.com/2015/01/01/turkey-enchiladas/ […]
