I made these with left overs after thanksgiving. I tweaked the recipe a tad - first I added cumin powder, chili powder and a touch of brown sugar to the sauce to give it more of a mole flavor. Also, to the turkey/sour cream/cheddar mixture I added more chili powder and some diced black olives for added flavor. The enchiladas were a huge hit!
The turkey and sour cream mixture was good, but it was too tomatoey. Not enough seasonings, so I added cilanto and cumin. The flour tortillas got soggy so if I try the recipe again, I'll use corn tortillas.
This was a hit with my turkey loving family. Although the turkey flavour might have been a bit heavy for the mild flavour of the cheese and sour cream, the sauce was amazing with yellow pepper instead of jalapeno. I will definitely make this again (as an alternative to the use-up-the-leftover-turkey pot pie).
I have a very similar recipe that I make all the time. It is slightly easier with similar results. When making the sauce, cook together 1 cup Chicken Broth and about a 1/2 cup of salsa (hot or mild, whatever you like). Once it's hot, add a rounded tablespoon of cornstarch, blended into a few tablespoons of cold water. Bring to a boil and cook about 2 minutes stirring constantly. Reduces the amount of cutting and chopping and saves a few minutes.
This is fantastic. Just the right amount of moisture. I read the reviews that said it was bland, and added about 1/2 tsp chili flakes, but that made it a bit too hot. Next time I'll use 1/4 tsp chili flakes. Also, I used about 2 tbsp of flour instead of 1 tbsp. The sour cream is a lovely contrast to the spiciness of the sauce.
This was excellent! I would however add more sour cream due to the fact of reheating, it was kinda dry when doing that. Deffinately add more cheese too. The sauce was easy, make extra if you like it really covered. I doubled this recipe and it made 2 large pans!
This was good. I used fat-free sour cream and increased the turkey so that I could make 6 enichiladas instead of 4. There was enough sauce, too. I might try crushed tomatoes instead of the diced--my DH likes tomato sauces but not chunks of tomatoes.
I made these with turkey left over from A/ R Slow Cooker Turkey Breast. They have GREAT flavor and I will definitly make them again. When I began preparing the recipe I put the tomatoes in a strainer to drain and continuously "shook" the strainer while making the rest of the dish. My problem was that the enchiladas were soggy and when I plated them the tomato topping slid right off the top. Next time I will use 14 oz diced tomatoes and fresh tomatoes for the remaining 14 oz. Again, great flavor and good for leftover turkey.
