Wild Turkey Enchiladas



This recipe is excellent for leftover turkey. I have tried this recipe with leftover quail and pheasant, it is excellent also. This recipe is one of my kids favorite.


Ingredients for Sauce:


3 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons flour

2-1/2 cups water

salt to taste


The Rest:


2 cups shredded turkey, cooked

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup onion, diced

4 oz. black olives, chopped


Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a saucepan, add flour, stirring constantly until brown. Add water and chili powder, stir to mix. Add garlic powder and salt, stir. When sauce begins to boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered for 10 minutes.

In a fry pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil. Place one tortilla at a time into oil until soft. Place portion of meat on tortilla shell, spread some sauce over the meat, roll up, and place in a baking dish. Pour any remaining sauce over the top of the finished tortillas. Evenly spread onion, olives, and cheese over the top of the tortillas. Place baking dish in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees until cheese is melted. Serve!

Refried beans, Spanish rice, and tossed green salad compliment this recipe well.

Serves 6
