Turkey Enchiladas

This is a great way to use leftover turkey from Thanksgiving!

SAUCE:
¾ cup chopped onions

¼ cup flour
1 large dash chili powder
¼ tsp garlic powder
1 15/16 oz can chili with beans
1 8oz can tomato sauce

2. Heat butter, add onion and cook until softened.
3. Add chili powder and garlic powder
4. Stir in flour and cook for a minute – then add water
5. Add chili and tomato sauce.
6. If consistency is too thick, add more water for a sauce-like consistency.
7. Put on low heat and proceed to the filling.


FILLING:
2 cups cooked, cubed chicken or turkey
¼ cup red taco sauce
1 tsp salt
¾ cup sour cream
1 ½ cup grated cheddar or Colby-jack cheese
½ cup grated cheese (to be used later)
