Halt, stop what you are doing! Do not throw away that leftover turkey or take it out of the freezer, I know what you can do with it. Before I begin, let me give you a moment to grab a napkin to wipe off the drool that will inevitably ensue after reading this recipe……O.k. I hope you got it. I found this recipe for Turkey Enchilada on Pinterest, of course. The image alone had me falling out. I mean, whaaaat, cranberry salsa! I made this and found myself scrapping the plate. The Enchilada is delish and, if you have flavored you turkey to perfection, you won’t be able to stop. The cranberry salsa, with that cilantro bite just pushes you to the edge of flavor country so be prepared to start scraping pots for any leftover turkey you can gather.
I did make a couple of changes to the recipe. Instead of butternut squash, I used sweet potatoes, because of course that is what I would have leftover after my favorite holiday. I also did not have any Gouda on hand so I replaced that with mozzarella cheese. I wanted the kids to be able to enjoy it so I stuck only with the more mild green sauce as the red can get a little spicy for miniature taste buds. Other than those few swaps, I pretty much stuck to the recipe and it was heaven. Now if you will excuse me I need to do the, I-ate-too-much side lean to make space for my fully belly. Enjoy!!!
