Turkey Enchilada Lasagna – Great Way to Use Leftover Turkey

Turkey enchilada lasagna recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers. Mexican casserole.

I love Mexican food in all varieties. It has been a little challenging to eat Mexican since my bariatric surgery, but I am still able to find good things to eat. This “lasagna” is one of those very good things. While my family eats this dish the way it’s presented in the recipe, I eat only the filling. When Joe is preparing the meal, he sets aside about 12 ounces of the turkey/sauce/veggies mixture for me, and I eat half of that per meal topped with half an ounce of cheddar cheese and some steamed vegetables on the side. I … Read more

This recipe includes homemade enchilada sauce. You can, of course, use a can of pre-made enchilada sauce, but it will not be as flavorful or delicious as the homemade.

Grilled Stuffed Burritos with Chicken, Feta, and Sargento Mexican Cheese

These burritos are like the pinnacle of food for Joe and me. They’re stuffed with everything imaginable – shredded chicken, couscous or rice, black beans, corn, Mexican blend cheese, salsa, Greek yogurt or sour cream, and feta cheese. Sure, fancier food is nice, but these burritos are something we could eat day in and day out, all the time. We love them. They’re the pinnacle of food for us because they’re like the burritos we get at a local restaurant called Neato Burrito. I’ve written about Neato Burrito before as we’ve tried on several occasions to recreate their yumminess at home (partly … Read more

My At-Home Neato Burrito

neato burrito

In the Harrisburg area, we have a small restaurant chain called Neato Burrito. I discovered it when I was about 19, when it had been open only a year or so. I was instantly smitten. The concept is simple; you walk along an assembly line, making choices about the contents of your burrito. What kind of tortilla? BBQ or brown rice? Refried or black beans? Chicken, beef, or vegetarian? Cheese or no cheese? There are more choices as you walk along, including what kind of salsa you want. The salsa of the day on Tuesday and Saturday is jalepeno-feta; it … Read more

The best beef enchiladas casserole - This simple and easy casserole can be made on the stovetop, slow cooker, or Crock Pot. Includes instructions for both.

This recipe is another in our challenge to try a new dish every week. Since getting started, we have tried some awesome new recipes – and some duds. We started with a cookbook from The Pampered Chef called 29 Minutes to Dinner. It’s really fantastic; if you go to a cooking show, you should consider it. In case you’re wondering, I bought it myself and have had no contact with any representatives from The Pampered Chef, except when I myself was a consultant 10 years ago. Anyway, that is the first cookbook I grabbed from my cookbook hoarding collection, so … Read more
