2 teaspoons olive oil
1 batch of my homemade enchilada sauce
1 medium white onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup leftover mashed sweet potato (from 2 small or medium sweet potatoes)
2 cups shredded cooked leftover turkey or chicken breast (about 1 pound)
6 yellow corn tortillas, cut into 1 inch strips
1 cup 2% Mexican shredded cheese, divided
Cilantro, green onions and greek yogurt/sour cream, for serving


1.First make the enchilada sauce, then set aside to cool. If you don't want to make homemade enchilada sauce you can use 2 cups store bought enchilada sauce.
2.To make the skillet: Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in large skillet. Add onions and garlic and cook 4-5 minutes until onions become translucent and garlic is fragrant. Add turkey and spoonfuls of mashed sweet potato and stir together to combine.
3.Next add the corn tortilla pieces and all of the enchilada sauce; stir to combine. Reduce heat to medium-low and sprinkle in 1/2 cup of cheese. Stir again and simmer for a few minutes.
4.Sprinkle another 1/2 cup of cheese over the top and cover for 5 minutes to help melt the cheese. Serve with cilantro, green onions or sour cream/greek yogurt.
