Turkey solutions??

Ok, do you still have lots of leftover turkey?  I do!  I came home at 4:30 today with no idea what to make, so I took a look at the fridge....and this is what I came up with.  This is richer than most of the food I make, but it was have to live a little!!

Turkey sour cream enchilada casserole (I swear it was sooooooooo good!!!)

2 cups shredded turkey
12 corn tortillas, quartered
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 of a medium onion, finely diced
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 or 2 jalapenos, finely diced
1/4 cup flour
2 cups chicken stock
3 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/2 bag of fresh baby spinach
1 cup lowfat sour cream
1 cup grated cheddar jack cheese

In a large saucepan, melt butter and saute onion, garlic and jalapeno until soft and lightly golden.  Add flour and cook for 1 minute.  Add chicken stock and whisk to smooth any lumps.  Bring sauce to a simmer, and add the tomatoes and spinach, cooking for 5 minutes or until the spinach is wilted.  Reduce the heat and stir in the sour cream.  Remove from the flame and set aside.

In a large casserole dish, add about 1/2 of the sauce.  Then layer 1/2 of the tortilla pieces in an overlapping pattern.  Top with half of the turkey, half of the cheese and half of the remaining sauce.  Repeat the layers.  Place into a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.  Let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.
