Category: Mexican, Main Dish, Casseroles, Poultry

 Ingredients List

  • 8 oz Whole green chiles
  • 1 lg Clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tb Oil
  • 1 1/2 lb Fresh tomatoes, peeled,
  • Seeded, and chopped
  • 2 c Coarsely chopped onions
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Dried oregano
  • 1/2 c Water
  • 3 c Shredded cooked turkey
  • Or chicken
  • 2 c Sour cream
  • 1 c Grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 c Oil
  • 12 Corn tortillas


Remove and discard the seeds from the chiles and chop the chiles finely. In
a 10-12-inch skillet saute' the chiles with the garlic in 2 tablespoons oil
over medium-high heat, stirring often. Add the tomatoes, onions, 1
teaspoon salt, oregano and water. Simmer uncovered until thick, stirring
often, for about 30 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine the turkey, sour cream, grated cheese, and
remaining 1 teaspoon salt, mixing well. Heat the 1/3 cup oil in a heavy
8-10-inch skillet. Cook each tortilla briefly in oil, turning once. Place
each tortilla between paper towels in a stack to remove excess oil. Fill
each tortilla with 4 tablespoons of the turkey filling, roll up, and place
side by side, seam side down, in a shallow 8 x 12-inch baking dish. This
may require 2 baking dishes. Pour the sauce over the top of the enchiladas
and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until heated through, about 20
minutes. If the dish is prepared ahead and held in the refrigerator, the
baking time will be 25-30 minutes. Reserve the sauce in a separate
container and do not pour over the enchiladas until they are to be baked.
Serve with refried beans and beer.
