Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Enchiladas

This dish is great during the holidays after everyone is tired of turkey and dressing. Cooked chicken also works great. This recipe reheats well and tastes even better as a leftover!


Leftover cooked turkey (white or dark meat pieces)
2 cans cream of celery soup or cream of chicken, 1 can diced green chilies
1 reg. size pkg. plain tortilla chips, crumbled
1 (8 oz.) pkg. Cheddar cheese, grated
1 (8 oz.) pkg. Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1 sm. onion, chopped
1 jar jalapenos (optional)


1. Saute onions in butter in medium skillet until golden brown. Add green chilies, soup, and 1 soup can of water. Stir and simmer until heated.
2. Crush tortilla chips, using 1/2 of package. Spread a layer in bottom of baking dish. Evenly place a layer of cooked turkey on top of chips. Spoon a layer of 1/2 of soup mixture over chips. Add jalapenos, if desired. Sprinkle with 1/3 of both grated cheeses.
3. Repeat chips, turkey, and soup mixture; top with grated cheese. Quantity is determined by the amount of turkey available. For larger amounts, simply continue to layer ingredients.
