Southwestern Turkey Casserole

This was a great recipe to get me going on a spicier version. Well, I am also using up stuff in the cupboards :) I had 1 can cream of celery in place of the mushroom. Added 1 can diced water chestnuts. Instead of greeen chili peppers, I had a can of diced tomatoes w/some green chili peppers in them. So I drained off 1/2 of the 14.5 oz. can and put them into the sour cream mixture. No corn tortillas either, so I Pam-sprayed my 4 flour tortillas and toasted them in the oven awhile. Then when cooled, I tore them apart to put into the bottom of my glass baking dish. Then I put half the soup/cream mixture over them. Then about 1 1/2 cups chopped cooked turkey, then rest of soup. Cheddar cheese on top, and baked it covered till nearly done. Then took off foil and added crushed JALEPNO kettle-chips on top and baked till those got a little toasty. Soooo excellent and you don't even notice that you are eating TURKEY AGAIN!!! LOL. Enjoy it all you spice lovers.

Very authentic on the crust, but I never heard of the MSG or beef bouillion/broth, but I think I might try it with the broth some time, and maybe even a little worcestershire sauce as some have mentioned. Another good tip (if you are saving some in the freezer for another time) is to half-bake them, then cool and wrap to freeze. They come better this way. Thaw and bake, or just bake them from the frozen state(takes awhile). Thanks for posting your recipe!

Did not have teriyaki sauce, and instead of paprika we like the hotter "sambal oelek" chilies! added about a teaspoon of that to the marinade...only had it in the marinade for 2 hours (time constraints) and could not grill today. I think it turns out great and moist in the oven. I dumped all the marinade in w/the thighs in a skillet with very tight lid. Part way thru cooking time I added chopped mushrooms, celery and cabbage. Also added chopped green onion. Was VERY GOOD!!!! Served with instant potatoes. Rice would have been great too, but am nearly out of my brown rice. Thanks so much for this recipe Wilemon :)

Made this today and it was very good. I did have to change it up, as I did not have all the ingredients on hand. I had only sweet onion so I diced up 2 or 3 T. and cooked that in a bit of olive oil, added garlic, cream of mushroom soup, and heavy cream (about 1/4 cup) to use that up---since I didn't have sour cream either! added an egg and a bit of croutons, S & P and a bit of Parm. cheese. Then added the cooked squash, mixed it all up, put it in a greased pan and baked it at 350 for about 40 minutes. Everyone gave it a thumbs up at dinner today!

Tasty and a good way to use up about 1/2 a can of clams. Just cut recipe down for a single serving today, but still heavy on the garlic. No one likes me but me now :)

Oven roasting most certainly took away any bitterness. Great recipe! Thank you!
