This recipe for chicken enchiladas can be changed slightly by
substituting white or brown rice for the cooked white beans. You can
also leave the beans out if you'd like. This is a great recipe for
freezing extra. It also can be prepared the night before or morning
and left in the fridge until cooking time.

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.
