I enjoy entering recipe contests almost as much as I enjoy cooking. This dish is my favorite nontraditional way to use leftover turkey. It's become one of my family's favorite dinners, too! —Jo Groth, Plainfield, Iowa


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles, drained, divided
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/3 cup taco sauce
  • 1 cup sour cream, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2-1/2 cups cooked cubed turkey
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 10 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh tomatoes


  1. In a skillet, saute onion and 2 tablespoons green chiles in 1 tablespoon butter until onion is tender. Remove from the heat. Add the taco sauce, 1/4 cup sour cream and chili powder. Stir in turkey and 1/2 cup cheese.
  2. Divide the mixture evenly among tortillas. Roll up and place seam side down in greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt remaining butter. Stir in flour until blended; gradually stir in broth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Stir in the remaining sour cream and remaining peppers.
