View Full Version : Turkey Enchiladas
12-28-2002, 09:57 AM
I'm in a big hurry to find a turkey enchilada recipe to make using leftover turkey tonight. It's a special request from a husband who has put up with major "things" (family members) over the holidays. We're an empty nest again, and he wants enchiladas. I'm hoping to get us back to eating healthy quickly, but would appreciate any recipe! Thanks!

Not sure if this is what your husband is hungry for since it's a light recipe; it calls for chicken, but I'm sure turkey would be fine. I haven't made it, but the WW recipes are usually pretty good. You could always jazz it up with extra/regular cheese, etc.

Thanks, Goldie! This just might do the trick, although for his sake I probably would use real cheese. Did you "weather" the storm successfully yesterday?

Lots of branches down; power kept flickering annoyingly so all the computer work I wanted to do was pretty challenging. But no major damage or outages here. Usually Kitsap co. gets slammed by storms - was that the case this time too?

Yes, we usually do, but yesterday was better. We were, however, trying to get our daughter to the airport. I don't know if you heard about the truck full of porta-potties overturning on the Narrows Bridge, but it made things interesting! The car also got hit by a branch falling, but no damage to the car...just our nerves. These windstorms just seem to be getting worse. I'm glad you came through it okay.
