Nice and spicy use for leftover turkey in a form that even the children will enjoy. Quick, too! Great topped with black olives, green onions, and tomatoes! Leftover ham would also be excellent in this dish.

  • In a medium bowl, mix chile peppers, cream cheese, and cumin. Stir in chopped turkey.

  • Place the tortillas in a microwave oven. Heat for 1 minute, or until the tortillas are softened. Spread about 2 heaping tablespoons of the chile pepper mixture on each tortilla, and roll up. Place the rolled tortillas, seam-side down, in single layer in the prepared baking dish.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the salsa and beans. Spoon the mixture over the enchiladas. Sprinkle the top with cheese.

  • Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until bubbly and lightly browned.

I was really disappointed with this recipe especially after reading all of the good reviews. I made the recipe exactly as written. I ate 1 enchilada my boyfriend ate half of one. I love Mexican but I didn't like this. Read More

I would add diced onion and minced garlic to the cream cheese chile cumin mixture. I put 1 can of sliced olives over the enchiladas and covered with 2 cups of grated cheddar/monterey jack cheese. Served with green onions tomatoes sour cream and guacamole. Yummy! Read More

What a wonderful way to use up some of that left over turkey! I used light cream cheese and reduced fat cheddar and there is NO difference in taste - in fact you could probably get away with fat-free cream cheese. Very good! Read More

I rated this recipe earlier and said it was too hot. Well I found out what the problem was and it wasn't the recipe.:) I accidentally used the wrong kind of canned peppers...the really hot kind! When I made it again I used what the recipe calls for and it turned out well. My husband really likes the flavor of the filling. Read More

Stopped on the way home and picked up the ingredients to make this tonight! Used leftover chicken. It was fast easy and tasted great! My husband is not a big Mexican food fan and he liked it! Very tasty and yummy. Could easily see adding other ingredients to vary the flavors. A must try and a must keep! Thanks for sharing. Read More
