Look no further…these Baked Turkey Enchiladas are a real crowd pleaser that can be made up to one day ahead. Serve with a spinach or tossed green salad and a lower-fat salad dressing.

3 cups (650 mL) cubed cooked turkey
1 10 oz (284 mL) can cream of chicken soup (half fat or regular)
2 cups (500 mL) shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
1 4½ oz (127 mL) can green chilies, drained
½ cup (125 mL) light sour cream
½ chopped red pepper
2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
2 cups (500 mL) prepared tomato salsa, divided
1 340 g pkg small flour tortillas (10 per package)
1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray two 9 x 13 inch (3 L) casserole dishes
with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Combine turkey, soup, 1 cup (250 mL) cheese, chilies, sour cream, red pepper and
cilantro (if using).
3. Spread ½ cup (125 mL) of salsa in the bottom of each casserole dish.
4. Lay tortillas flat on cutting board or counter. Divide mixture evenly among
tortillas, placing filling in a line down the centre. Roll each tortilla into a fairly
tight cylinder. Place 5 tortillas seam side down in each casserole dish. Spoon
remaining salsa over top of tortillas and sprinkle with reserved cheese. Bake for
30-35 minutes or until bubbling and heated through.
