Leftover Turkey Enchiladas-1

The feast has been devoured (at a time or two at this point), the guests are gone, yet you're left with a gob of turkey that's still waiting to be eaten. Sure, you can chow down on it as-is for the tenth time OR you can use it to make Leftover Turkey Enchiladas! Our vote is for the second option for lots of reasons. First, it's just so tasty! We never considered adding turkey to our regular enchiladas, but it really makes for a fantastic flavor combination. And speaking of flavors, our second reason is that your taste buds get a little Tex-Mex-seasoned switch up, making it more likely for you to actually consume all the turkey that's left. We could go on and on, but our final proposition for you choosing to make these Leftover Turkey Enchiladas is because it's so easy! Even though it's been a few days since your massive meal, it takes some time to recover from all that time in the kitchen (plus, washing dishes. Ick.) Trust us, you won't be disappointed!
