Great recipe! I used the green chile enchilada sauce instead of the salsa. This was the best!! Everyone went back for thirds!

GREAT WAY TO USE UP LEFTOVER TURKEY!!! Rates 5 with toppings of sour cream, jalepenos, etc. Had to make changes, but good results with 'em ... made 'em two days in a row! Still wanted more after that! Used 1/2c finely chopped onion; 2 cl garlic; 2c chopped, cooked turkey; 1/2c FIREROASTED TOMATOES, undrained (sub for salsa), 1/2c reduced fat sour cream (sub for cc), 1/2t dried cilantro, no cumin. After cooking the o & g for a few minutes, I added the rest along with a cup of cheese. Didn't heat it. Just rolled as was. Used 1/2c in each. Made my version of Mrs Espy's enchilada sauce. It's listed in the review, if you want it. Put a little in the dish & poured some over the enchiladas - about a cup total. Had to thin the remaining (to have enough) with turkey broth the next day & it was still very good. Be sure to not leave any exposed or they'll dry. Then half cup cheese on top. Baked loosely foil covered 20 to 30 at 350. Best thing of all? BOTH KIDS (11 & 13) LIKED THEM! That rarely happens - unless it's dessert! :D ... Jan 2012 Doubled with a 8oz bar cream cheese. It's better than sour cream, but sour cream is still good. Double recipe ensures leftovers.


These were really good, I used pace hot picante sauce didn' t have cilantro and as always used garlic powder. Very interesting enchiladas!!

This recipe was fabulous! The only thing I added was half a packet of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix as I cooked the chicken. The kids ate seconds!
