Turkey Enchilada Casserole

by Stanley Fisher
(Guthrie, MN)


5 Skinless boneless turkey
1 large can of green enchilada sauce
4 cups of shredded cheese (we use Colby jack)
1/2 cup milk
1 bag of flour or corn tortilla (we use flour)

Heat green sauce on low & add 1/2 cup milk stir until blended.
Ladle sauce into 9x12 pan about 1/2 inch thick. Start first layer of tortillas. Cook turkey in microwave until almost done, slightly pink in the middle (if using leftover turkey from holidays just shred). Shred one layer of turkey over tortillas. Add one layer of cheese over turkey. Ladle more sauce over cheese (about three ladles). Repeat this process two times. MAKE SURE TO SAVE ABOUT 1 CUP OF CHEESE FOR TOP. End with layer of tortillas. Add last cup of cheese and top with left over sauce.

You may add olives to top and/or green chilies to sauce.

Bake @ 350 until cheese is completely melted
