Turkey & Sweet Potato Enchiladas

Enchiladas, Family Style. 


This Friday is just like any other out here in the New Mexico hinterland. There were big-eared rabbits eating breakfast (nibbling spare tufts of grass). A chickadee or two in the junipers. Pink light on the distant mesas. And as far as I know, no scary crush of shoppers at the Espanola Walmart. At least I haven't heard any sirens off in the distance. Truth be told I haven't budged from my casita (and I have no plans to). Nope. It's just another day here, call it what you want. Black Friday is quiet as an empty nest. So I thought I'd share a recipe for leftover turkey and sweet potatoes- a surprisingly tasty combo.

As always, make it as mild or as spicy as your little heart desires.

Gluten-Free Turkey and Sweet Potato Enchiladas Recipe

Originally published November 2008.

This recipe is an homage to my sons who tend to like  their enchiladas with drizzles of fresh lime juice, chunks of sweet pineapple and spicy salsa. My latest version in this genre features leftover turkey and sweet potatoes- a combo that makes for some seriously scrumptious enchiladas. I kid you not.

Ingredients:

2 cups of your favorite salsa- spicy or mild
4 cups of cooked free-range organic turkey, hand torn or shredded
Juice from 1-2 fresh limes
Sea salt and ground pepper
2 cups cooked sweet potato
Pinch of cumin
2 4-oz. cans chopped roasted green chiles, drained
Light olive oil, as needed
12 corn tortillas
1 cup diced pineapple- no juice
1-2 cups shredded Jalapeño Jack cheese- or vegan cheese for non-dairy
Hot red pepper flakes, to taste

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Pour about a half cup of salsa into the bottom a large lightly oiled 10x13" baking dish- or use two smaller pans for six enchiladas each.

Place the torn turkey pieces into a bowl and squeeze lime juice all over the cooked turkey; stir; season with sea salt and pepper and toss well.

Season the sweet potato with cumin, to taste. Add in 1 can of the roasted green chiles; mix. Add sea salt and pepper if it needs it.

Heat a dash of olive oil in a skillet, and heat one corn tortilla until softened, turning it over once to coat with oil.

Place the tortilla into the sauced baking dish. Add a spoonful of sweet potato down the center. Sprinkle with 1/12 of the turkey.

Roll up the enchilada- seam side down, and place it at the far end of the dish.

Repeat for the remaining tortillas, adding more oil, if needed to soften them.

Pour the remaining salsa over the rolled tortillas. Top with the diced pineapple and the second can of roasted green chiles. Sprinkle with cheese and red pepper flakes.

Bake in a 350ºF. oven until the enchiladas are bubbling and heated through, about 30 minutes.

Serves 4 to 6.
