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.
