Smile Leftover Turkey Ideas

Don't know about you but I'm craving something really nice and spicy! Leftover turkey is oh so bland. How about turkey enchiladas?

12 corn tortillas, heated until pliable (keep them warm wrapped in a hot towel)
3 c. cooked turkey, minced
8 oz. shredded pepperjack cheese
8 oz. shredded oxaca cheese
1/4 c. minced onion
1 cup sour cream
salt & pepper to taste
Green Chile sauce (below)

Chile Sauce:

Saute 2 cloves of garlic and one small minced onion in corn oil until translucent. Stir in 3 ounces chopped green chilis (you can buy this in a can) and salt to taste, about 1/2 tsp. Add one cup water and 1 Tbs. flour and stir vigorously. There you have your sauce. Set it aside.

The Enchiladas:

Mix 1 cup of the chile sauce with the minced turkey. Place a few spoonfuls of the mixture down the center of the warm corn tortillas. Roll them up and place seam-side down in a baking dish. Pour the remaining sauce over the tortillas and then top generously with the grated cheeses. Bake at 350F for about 20 minutes. Now top with dollops of sour cream if desired. Return the enchiladas to the oven and bake another 10 minutes.

Happy Leftovers!

We like to have a kind of Sheperd"s Pie made with the turkey, gravy stuffing any vg and stuffing topped with mashed potatoes. Yummy.

Alas, we were at a friend's house, so no leftovers this year.

Turkey Fluatas

Try this with left over turkey.

Turkey Fluatas

2 cups shredded cooked turkey
2/3 cup salsa
1/4 cup chopped green onions (or really finely minced yellow onion)
1 tsp cumin
vegetable oil
30 corn tortillas
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
guacamole, sour cream, olives and more salsa for dipping (as many or as few as you like)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F).

Mix together the turkey, salsa, onion and cumin.

Heat a skillet with enough oil to lightly cover the bottom. Quickly fry each tortilla a few seconds on each side and set aside on paper towel. Add more oil to the skillet as required until all the tortillas are heated.

Spoon about 1 tbsp of turkey mixture and 1 tbsp cheese down the center of each tortilla a roll tightly. Place stuffed tortillas seam-side down on a baking sheet.

Bake for 15-18 minutes or until crisp. Serve with guacamole, sour cream, olives and salsa for dipping.

if you blitz the turkey in a blender with herbs and spices it`ll go to a sort of powder like mix, add enough egg to this to make it like a soft dough.
take a peice of this and roll it into a ball (golf ball size is good), push your finger into it half way to make a hollow, and then put in a small cube of frozen garlic and herb butter and seal it up well, then wrap it into a square of cling flim by placing it in the middle then bringing up the edges and twisting tightly so there`s no air trapped do this until the mix is gone.
then lay them all on a sheet of tin foil (single layer) and wrap them well.
place into boiling water for 20 mins.
when cool they will have set into shape and not burst.
these can then be pan fried until golden and served with whatever you like, Savory rice is nice :)
