Thanksgiving Leftover Turkey Enchiladias

I literally had bags and bags of leftover turkey this year and had to find ways to use it up.  I made bone broth, turkey noodle soup, even turkey Thai green curry.


Tuesday rolled around and I knew I wanted a Mexican theme, for taco Tuesday so I created these enchiladas.  I made my gluten and dairy free, so I’ll share how I did both.


Here’s what I used

1 28oz can of green chile enchilada sauce 

1 10 oz can of diced tomatoes with chiles 

3/4 c. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (left it out of the dairy free portion)

1 c. diced leftover turkey

4 flour tortillas

4 corn tortillas


Combine 1/4 can of the enchilada sauce to a bowl.  Add in whole can of tomatoes with diced chilies (do not drain), cheese, and turkey. Stir to combine.  Add 3-4 tablespoons of this mixture to each tortilla.  Gently roll and place seam side down in 9×13 greased pan.  Cover with the rest of the can of sauce, top with cheese, if desired.  Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes until the cheese is bubbly and golden brown.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Turkey Curry

I did NOT mean to make a 22lbs turkey this year for my family but I guess I don’t know how to read tags on turkeys, so here we are.  Day of 7 of leftover turkey.


This recipe was ABSOLUTELY delicious and might have been one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever made.  And beside the rice, everything I used to make this was leftover from Thanksgiving.  Here’s what you need.

Thai green curry with turkey


2 medium sweet potatoes, diced

1 onion

2 cups chicken broth (or turkey broth-here’s my recipe for turkey bone broth)

3-4 tablespoons Thai green curry paste

Leftover turkey

Cooked rice (I always make jasmine rice in my rice cooker)

I made this recipe in my Instantpot  which made this insanely easy.



Add diced sweet potato and onion to instantpot with broth.  Stir in 3-4 tablespoons of thai curry paste.   Set Instantpot to high pressure to 8 minutes.  Allow to release pressure naturally.

Stir in turkey.  Serve over cooked rice.  Literally, that’s it!  So yummy and so easy.
