  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir shallots in the hot butter until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir jalapeno peppers into shallots and cook until fragrant, about 2 more minutes. Stir cranberry jelly into the shallots and peppers until melted.
  3. Mix shredded turkey with jalapeno-cranberry jelly mixture in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Arrange tortilla chips on the prepared baking sheet and fill each chip with 1 tablespoon turkey mix. Top each chip with 1/2 teaspoon of white Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese topping is melted and the chips are golden, about 10 minutes.

Delicious. I had a jar of cranberry jalapeno sauce so I used that and I used corn tortillas that I cut into small circles and then crisped up in a mini muffin tin. These are dinner tonight, alon...

My favorite after Thanksgiving treat!!

I made this for our dart league and got so many compliments about how good this was. They all wanted the recipe. I wonder, though, could you use chicken too, instead of turkey?
