Cheesy Turkey-Stuffed Enchiladas


  • 8 cups water
  • 1 1/2 pounds tomatillos (husks removed)
  • 3 serrano chiles, seeded
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) melted butter

  1. In a medium saucepan, boil the water, add the tomatillos and serrano chiles and let them cook for about 8 minutes.
  2. In a blender, pure the tomatillos, chiles, garlic, butter and onions, using a little bit of the tomatillo water to thin it out if necessary. Add salt to taste.
  3. Place some of the shredded turkey in a warm corn tortilla and roll up.
  4. Divide the remaining turkey and repeat with the remaining tortillas.
  5. In a non-stick square baking dish, place the rolled up tortillas, add the tomatillo sauce and top with the cheese.
