King Ranch Turkey
This is a fantastic recipe during the holidays for leftover turkey. It uses many items you may have left over or just didn't use during your holiday meal. This is also a great one for winter as it warms you from the inside and sticks to your ribs. My family considers it comfort food for the soul."I love the flavor of this dish! I used sprouted whole grain tortillas, added fresh green beans, and omitted the butter. It did turn out a tad-bit soupy so I made a note to cut the broth in half and reduce the creamed soups by a forth. " - LadyMayes

King Ranch Turkey Preparation
Preheat oven to 300 degrees
Melt 2 tbls butter in skillet over medium heat then add onions and bell peppers and saute until soft 4-6 min. then add garlic and saute 1-2 minutes. Melt remaining butter and set aside for later.
Mix together soups and broth and warm in microwave for 2 minutes to help blend them evenly. Add Ro-tel, onion, bellpepper and turkey. Stir till blended evenly.
Tear 7 tortillas into bite size pieces and line bottom of 13 x 9" glass baking dish with half of the pieces. Pour in half of the turkey and soup mixture then layer with half of the shredded cheese. Repeat the layering of tortillas, turkey soup and cheese.
Bake uncovered 45-55 minutes on center rack remove.
Cut remaining 3 tortillas into 8ths and place round edge of tortillas down along edges of dish with points sticking out. A butter knife works well to assist with sliding them into casserole with out disturbing the cheeses. Brush melted butter on the outer portion of tortillas. Sprinkle top of casserole with chopped green onion and place back in oven for 10- 15 minutes. Watch carefully and remove when tortilla tips are brown.
Let your casserole rest at least 10 minutes before serving.
