Leftover Turkey Tortilla




2 cups shredded cheddar or favorite mexican cheese blend
1 (2 ounce) can sliced black olives
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and chili powder
24 (6 inch) flour tortillas
 1  bottle of taco sauce or  a (19 ounce) can red enchilada sauce
 4 cups cooked turkey, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
optional: chopped jalapeno peppers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.

In a small bowl, combine the cheese, spices and black olives.
In a small skillet, heat enough oil to lightly coat one tortilla, and just warm each side. Remove and dip in sauce to coat on on side.
Add turkey, olives and cheese mixture to center of tortilla, roll and place in the prepared dish. Sprinkle with more cheese on top.  Place into a baking dish and bake until cheese is melted.   Bake time is around 20 minutes.

  3. Now that's a great idea. There is so much turkey in the fridge and only Ted and Shane will eat it. I need to get creative so it doesn't get old.

  5. Wow! That really looks delicious. I'd love to have one of those. It sure beats a turkey with mayo sandwich. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary

  8. Wish I had leftover turkey to make this yummy tortilla! We were invited to friends' house for Thanksgiving. Now, I want more than ever to bake my own turkey. Missed it this year!

    Hope your Thanksgiving was great, considering your loss, which is something we all have, especially around the holidays!

  10. My favorite part of Thanksgiving is making sandwiches out of the leftover turkey.

    This turkey tortilla is a mighty fine option also!
