Sour Cream Turkey Enchiladas

Sherry Blizzard


I love turkey combined with green chile and tomatoes (see my recipe for Turkey Tortilla Soup.) La Posta Restaurant in Old Mesilla, New Mexico makes wonderful green chile enchiladas and this is very similar in taste to their base. What better way to use up those Thanksgiving leftovers than to make a pan of enchiladas with a side of pinto beans? Even better with a dollop more of sour cream on top!
