Turn Your Turkey Day Leftovers into Sweet + Savory Enchiladas

Who is as ready for Thanksgiving feasting as we are? We can’t wait to cozy up to the table with my family and friends to celebrate the season. Of course, with every huge gathering, there are always leftovers. We can’t stand the thought of letting all those carefully prepared dishes go to waste, but can’t eat the same meal more than twice without getting bored. Instead of the usual turkey sandwich, try giving Thanksgiving leftovers a bit of a Texas twist!

With a batch of tortillas, we pulled together a Thanksgiving take on enchiladas, no extra fuss required! We used some flavorful leftover sides, but feel free to get crazy with your own combinations.

Ingredients:

– whole wheat tortillas

– sweet potatoes

– turkey

– corn

– cranberry sauce

– sour cream

Instructions: 

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Begin by building the enchiladas, spread the mashed sweet potatoes onto a tortilla. Don’t let those yams go to waste! Cubed sweet potatoes or butternut squash would work great as well.

3. Add corn and turkey on top.

4. Roll into an enchilada, then place into a baking dish. Repeat this until you have as many enchiladas as you like.

5. Smear the sour cream over the tortillas.

6. Add the cranberry sauce on top, the more the berrier! (You see what I did there? haha).

7. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until hot all the way through. This shouldn’t take long since everything is already cooked, you just need to reheat it.

Now, let’s really get started! Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

I love the combination of the sour cream with the cranberry sauce. Perfect amount of tart and sweet, all together in a creamy sauce!

These are perfect for skipping Black Friday and lounging around watching football. Hello, everyone knows Cyber Monday is where its at.

Want to remix a remix? Try making these as quesadillas with sour cream cranberry sauce for dipping, or as tacos!
