Ok, I know what you are thinking. Mexican again? Well, no, not really. Although the original concept is Mexican, this recipe is about as American as you can get. At a stretch it could be Tex-Mex. It is homemade fast food. Quick and easy. It is a great way to use turkey leftovers but you can use chicken if you are all out of turkey.
Leftover Turkey Enchiladas
1.5 cups shredded or chopped cooked turkey
1 cup picante sauce
1 (3-oz) packet cream cheese, cubed
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp oregano
1.5 cups shredded cheese (monterey jack and/or cheddar)
8 flour tortillas
Lightly grease a 7×12 inch baking dish. Combine turkey, 1/4 cup picante sauce, cream cheese, green onion, cumin and oregano in skillet. Place over low heat until cheese is melted, stirring occasionally. Add another 1/2 cup shredded cheese to melt.
Spoon 1/3 cup turkey mixture down the center of each tortilla, roll up and place seam-side down in the baking dish. Spoon remaining 3/4 cup picante sauce evenly over the top of the enchiladas, cover with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until hot.
