"This is a wonderful use of leftover turkey or you could even use chicken. You may also want to add potato chips to the top for some crunch."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
chopped cooked turkey
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
shredded Cheddar cheese
frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 (4 ounce) can
chopped green chiles
chopped fresh cilantro
This was great, however I added fresh broccoli and doubled the cheese. It still turned out great. I also used brown minute rice, which I cooked first then added and everything turned out fine. Will make again when I have left over turkey!
The mission of using this recipe was to try and use up leftovers. The only substitution we made was to use a cup of regular milk in place of evaporated milk. It turned out surprisingly well. Usually we cook with a lot of spices, but we just added some ground pepper to the top and my husband and I both went back for seconds.
My one comment about the instructions was that I did not know whether to bake it with the lid on or off, and tried with the lid on. In 50 minutes, the casserole hadn't set, so I had to bake it another 20 with the lid off. I think in the future I would try this recipe with shredded potatoes rather than rice, just for the texture.
Thanks for sharing, BABYPHAT55!
