Expert Tips

If the casserole or stew used in this recipe already contains cheese, no additional cheese is required.

In my mother's house, tortillas were the typical Friday meal; they were the perfect solution for using all the extra food from the week. In this recipe, I did the same thing with my Thanksgiving leftovers. You can modify the recipe according to what you have on hand.

When cooking your tortilla, avoid turning up the heat to speed up the process-you'll only finish with a burnt bottom and uncooked top!

Directions

  • 1 In a medium-sized bowl, combine the chopped turkey, cooked rice (or pasta), leftover casserole (or stews) and cheese. Stir well with a fork.
  • 2 In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, adding salt and pepper, by hand with a fork for one minute.
  • 3 Pour the mixture over the combined leftovers and mix thoroughly.
  • 4 Next, heat one tablespoon of oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Transfer the prepared leftovers into the pan and press down lightly to form an evenly shaped tortilla.
  • 5 Lower the heat to medium and let cook for 20 minutes or until the surface appears fully cooked.
  • 6 You can then brown the tortilla in the oven for five minutes or use a plate to flip it and brown the other side in the skillet.
  • 7 Heat the pasta sauce in a small pot.
  • 8 When ready, serve the tortilla hot and topped with the sauce.
