Turkey Enchiladas with Sour Cream

Makes 6 servings

Notes: Use any favorite, good-quality salsa, red or green, for these enchiladas. The recipe is a great way to use up leftover holiday turkey, but if you don't have turkey on hand, shredded cooked chicken is a good substitute. Serve the enchiladas with a simple Mexican coleslaw of shredded cabbage dressed with lime juice and cumin.

Turkey Enchiladas with Sour Cream

Leigh Beisch
 3 cups shredded skinned cooked turkey (see notes)
 2 cups sour cream
  About 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (8 oz.)
 1 teaspoon salt
 1/3 cup vegetable oil
 12 corn tortillas
 1 jar (16 oz.) medium-hot salsa (see notes)
Step 1

In a bowl, mix turkey, sour cream, 2 cups shredded cheese, and the salt.

Step 2

Heat oil in an 8- to 10-inch frying pan over low heat. Dip the tortillas, one at a time, in the hot oil just until limp, about 5 seconds.

Step 3

Fill tortillas equally with turkey mixture, roll up, and arrange side by side, seam down, in a 9- by 13-inch baking dish. Pour salsa evenly over the top.

Step 4

Bake in a 350° oven until heated through, about 20 minutes. If desired, sprinkle more shredded cheese over hot enchiladas before serving.
