  • 5 plum tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 ½ teaspoons finely chopped canned chipotle chilies*
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 cups coarsely shredded cooked turkey
  • 2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 12 5- to 6-inch corn tortillas

Preparation:

  1. Heat 3 tablespoons oil in large saucepan over medium heat. Add 1 1/2 cups onions and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add enchilada sauce, tomatoes and chipotles.
