Thanksgiving in August

Well, just the turkey part. Handy was craving turkey so we did a modified shebang earlier in the week...turkey, stuffing, gravy, plus some leftovers to round out the meal. I put a hunk of turkey in the freezer, but we still had a lot in the fridge ...

The solution was Handy's brilliant idea: TURKEY ENCHILADAS.

Enchiladas de pavo son muy deliciosos.

Of course I have no real recipe.
It's just a "throw it together" kind of thing.
Chop up the turkey. Add some sliced black olives and diced green chiles.
Crumble up some queso fresco.
Lightly fry the tortillas...about 5 seconds per side.
(I used to cheat and not do this step but it makes a huge difference.)
Open up a can of green enchilada sauce and let your handy husband assemble them.
Bake at 350 for a half hour or so.

Muy bueno.

Ernest's going back for seconds. He has to carb load...he estimates he burned 1000 calories on the bike today. The giant burger, fries and chocolate shake afterwards probably replenished most of it.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Gracias mis amiga! I think I might try that later this week! Right now we're off to take advantage of Dave's free lunch at Famous Daves' (That dude better not be trying to swipe Dave Days!)

Now that's an idea! We don't usually have too much leftover turkey. Husband and I are turkey sandwich hounds. But if we did? This is great. I'm guessing the tex-mex spices mask the turkey flavor and it tastes like chicken enchiladas.
