Leftover Turkey- Salsa Verde Enchiladas

You have made it to the other side.  You survived Thanksgiving.  Memories were made. Food was yummy.  And now you have leftovers.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love Thanksgiving leftovers but there is only so many turkey cranberry sandwiches on person can eat.  My Texas roots always have me turn to Turkey Salsa Verde Enchiladas.  You can use white or dark turkey meat.  Add in some chips and salsa and you have a great meal.
