Festive Enchiladas

Festive Enchiladas
Zesty enchiladas filled with seasonal flavors

With the winter raging in full fury outside, Joan picked up her Christmas gift cookbook, Gooseberry Patch Christmas Kitchen and selected this brunch dish for dinner.

2 to 2-1/2 c. cooked turkey, shreded
15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
16-oz. whole berry cranberry sauce , divided
1-1/2 c. salsa, divided
1 c. shredded Colby-Jack cheese, divided
1/2 c. sour cram
3 green onions, sliced
1/4 c. fresh cilantro, snipped
1 t. ground cumin
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
8 8-inch flour tortillas
1 t. hot pepper sauce
Optional: green onions, sliced

In a large bowl, stir together turkey, beans, one cup cranberry sauce, 1/2 cup salsa, 3/4 cheese, sour cream, green onions and seasonings. Spoon 2/3 cup filling onto each tortilla; roll up tortillas. Place seam-side down in a lightly greased 3-quart casserole dish; set aside. Stir together remaining cranberry sauce and salsa; add hot sauce and spoon over tortillas. Cover with aluminum foil; bake at 350 dregrees for 45 minutes. Uncover; top with remaining cheese and bake an additional 5 to 10 minutes, until heated through and cheese is melted. Garnish with additional green onions, if desired.

Makes 8 servings.

Note: Can substitute leftover chicken for turkey.
