Satisfying, lean, and a real crowd-pleaser, these enchiladas come together in a mere 25 minutes. Here’s how: You’ll start with shredded roasted turkey or chicken (from a leftover or rotisserie bird) and mix it with corn, cheese, salt and pepper. Roll the filling into flour tortillas, transfer the enchiladas to a baking dish, and top the whole thing with store-bought enchilada sauce. After baking the dish for 20 minutes or less, garnish with chopped fresh cilantro, and you’re ready to eat. Chips and salsa or rice and beans—and maybe even a margarita—optional. Don’t expect leftovers; our recipe serves four (two enchiladas per person).
