One Bird, Three Ways: Part 3
We're still working on that turkey we had for Sunday dinner!
As the week goes on, the recipes using our turkey get easier — in no small part because the meat from our turkey is already fully cooked, allowing us to make quick heat-up meals out of it for the rest of the week. For example, last night's easy supper:
Enchiladas! This is a totally easy way to use any leftover meat, because all you have to do is heat them through and melt the cheese on top. Just put about 1/4 cup of shredded turkey in the center of a large tortilla and roll it up, tucking the ends under as you put it in a baking dish. Line them up, pour some salsa over top, and top with shredded cheese. Heat in a 350-degree oven until the cheese melts. Garnish with sour cream and jalapeños (or not).
That's all there is to it. You can add rice and/or beans to your meat filling if you like (or if you need to stretch it a little further). This is also a great use for the turkey's dark meat if your family isn't into it — the salsa adds the most flavor in this dish anyway.
