Leftover Turkey Enchilada Pot Pie

Margaret G


After thanksgiving or Christmas, when the sides and desserts are long gone, but you're still left with a mountain of turkey meat, what do you do? Zazz it up into something completely different! This recipe is easy and quick, but full of flavor. If you can't eat 2 pies quickly enough, you can freeze half the filling for another night. Even easier!

How to Make Leftover Turkey Enchilada Pot Pie


  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. In a medium saucepan, saute onion and garlic in oil over medium heat until tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add meat, enchilada sauce, tomatoes and chilis, beans, corn, 1 cup cheese, and seasonings and mix until well blended and warm.
  4. In a lightly greased pie pan, place bottom crust. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Gently add filling and spread evenly. Top with other pie crust. Fold and pinch around edges. Cut a few slits into the top crust to release steam.
  5. Bake 40 minutes or until golden brown. If edges begin to brown too much, cover edges with foil.
  6. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or fat free Greek yogurt.
