"My family absolutly loved this. When they made it at the live show the smells were aluring. I was hesitant to make it because im not a big turkey/ chicken person with certain dishes. This changed it. Instead of frying i cooked the tortillas in the microwave like the package said."

"Excellent,. Great way to use left over Thanksgiving turkey. The recipe was easy and fast to put together. The only change I made was fresh tomatoes and sorranoe peppers from the garden, instead of canned Mexican diced tomatoes."

"I really liked this recipe. I didn't have enough room in the pans for all of the enchiladas so we ate some taco-style and it was terrific. I would definitely recommend this recipe."
