What are Thanksgiving Enchiladas?
An enchilada, by definition, is a tortilla wrapped around filling and topped with a savory sauce. While it’s most often associated with Mexican-inspired flavors, we’ve loaded our flour tortilla with Thanksgiving dinner flavors: turkey, stuffing, gravy, and cranberry sauce!
Each turkey filled roll-up is laid in a casserole dish and topped with more gravy, as well as a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese. Then it’s baked until hot and bubbly, and the cheese is melted.
Delicious comfort food
After your first bite of these Thanksgiving Enchiladas, I predict this soft and creamy comforting dish just might become a new favorite after Thanksgiving. You can also swap in (or add in) any of your other leftovers from Thanksgiving such as mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, or squash.
