Unless you have several large football teams over to the house on Thanksgiving, I know you'll have turkey leftovers. I've posted this recipe before but thought since "turkey day" is creeping up on us, it was time for a re-post so you'll have it handy if you can't think of a way to use up the leftovers.

Chicken/Turkey Enchilada Casserole
3-4 cups diced, cooked chicken or turkey, 1 cup chopped onion, 1 can Cream of Chicken soup, 1 can Cream of Mushroom soup, 1 can Chicken Broth, 1 can chopped green chilies (I use the mild ones) 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes, fresh or canned (partially drained) 1/4 cup salsa, 1 small can sliced olives, 1 small carton sour cream, 12-15 tortillas, torn into bite size pieces (corn or flour) and 1/2 pound grated cheese, Cheddar or Jack mixed.
Mix all ingredients, except grated cheese. Pour into a 9" x 11" baking pan. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top and bake at 350* for 1 hour if using corn tortillas, a little longer if using flour tortillas.
This is a favorite of ours anytime I have left over turkey or chicken. You can make it as mild or hot as you care to just by choosing mild or hot salsa and chilies. Enjoy.........Linda

another yummy recipe!! thanks Linda!! I'm going to definitely print this one out

Albertson's here is running a special (or was; not sure if they are doing it this week too); buy one turkey/get one free if you spend an additional $25.00 and use your preferred card. we're not having dinner here so I didn't think of getting a turkey at this deal but the more I think about it, I think I'm going to get it if they still offer it since it will be such a great deal (provided I can make room in my freezer, lOL) so this recipe will definitely come in handy! thanks :)

A few things I do with left over turkey is.... throw some bbq sauce on it and make bbq turkey sandwiches. I don't think I will have left over's this year.
