Sprucing Up Leftovers with Kraft

Like most people: I hate wasting food. And with the holidays coming up, I know we will have a huge surplus of leftovers {especially after Thanksgiving} in our home. So, Today I'll be sharing one of our go-to recipes that utilizes all those leftovers as part of a sponsored collaboration with #CollectiveBias & its advertisers. Per the usual, all opinions are mine alone:)! #TasteTheSeason #shop 

We have two picky eaters in our household, so we usually like to re-create meals they enjoy. Enchiladas is one of the meals they actually love, so we make a lot of variations of this dish {to get our kids to eat}.
Here is what I used for this recipe: 
We had some cooked turkey cutlets we needed to use up so, I popped it in the food processor {with a handful of cilantro & onions} to make it the perfect texture & flavor for the enchiladas. 
 I warmed the tortillas on the stove with a tsp of oil & then filled them with turkey, Kraft's turkey stuffing mix, bell peppers, & topped it with Kraft shredded cheese. 
 Then rolled them up & poured enchilada sauce over the tortillas. Then stuck it in a pre-heated 350° oven for 8-10 mins.
 Then take it out, to top it with a generous amount of cheese, cilantro & onions and bake until cheese has melted.

Then dish it up & enjoy!
 The stuffing in these enchiladas is such a great addition to this recipe! But, I happen to love stuffing{so, I'm totally bias}. These enchiladas are so easy to whip up & so tasty! Since, we did these for the whole family, the dish had a very mild spice factor, next time I'll have to add in some red peppers to pack a little more heat & flavor.
This recipe would also go really well in tamales{definitely for next time}. 

 What do you like to do with all your holiday leftovers?
