Cranberry Turkey Enchiladas

by Laura

Today is my last post for your Thanksgiving leftovers.  I will be taking tomorrow off so I hope you all have a safe and fabulous Thanksgiving.  Be sure to stop back on Friday and Saturday though.  I’ll have some quick and easy main dish recipes for those busy nights during the holiday season.
The recipe is really quite simple.  You fill the enchiladas with a simple filling that includes turkey.  Then you top them with a sauce made from salsa and cranberry sauce!  I know, it’s genius!
The fun thing is my family doesn’t eat cranberries, but they all ate this.  My hubby did figure out that there were cranberries in there, but said he didn’t care because it was yummy.
I have a fun giveaway for you over on my giveaway page.  Be sure to check it out.  This prize will help out with your holiday entertaining.
Plus, here are a few more ideas for those Thanksgiving leftovers!  If the recipe calls for chicken, just substitute turkey.  And don’t forget the recipe that I posted yesterday too.

Yum! I love to make a panini with the leftover turkey and jellied cranberries. I bet this would be another great option!
Have a wonderful holiday!
