This was an easy way to use up turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving. I used the shredded turkey meat and did everything else exactly the way the recipe indicated. It was well received.

When our Daughter-in-law made this for the family I knew I had to have the recipe too. It is healthy and easy.

Very good recipe. My son used to be a chef and I asked him what he thought and he really liked it. The taste might be different depending on the salsa and canned items you use. Also used flour tortillas . I would recommend having sour cream as a topping. Definitely a keeper

I make this without the peppers and use Whole grain and white corn tortillas from The Tortilla Factory. It's a fantastic thing to make at home or for a party.

I'm not a big fan of Mexican type food, but this was great! Even my 2 and 5 yr olds gobbled it up.
