The hearty entree is generously stuffed with cubed turkey, cheese and chilies in a mild creamy sauce. My daughter made this dish for us, and it was excellent.—Leona Therou, Overland Park, Kansas

"Not only is this recipe great the way it is (which I make at least twice a month), I did something completely different with the turkey mixture. I poured it over a bed of homemade garlic mashed potatoes. With a side salad and some green beans, it made for an awesome meal! Try it, you'll LOVE it!"

"This has been a family favorite for many years, but we prefer it with chicken. I either use leftover cooked cubed chicken or brown ground chicken for this. I also add considerably more coriander and cumin to suit our tastes."
