Thanksgiving Turkey

You may already have your own way to make turkey.  This is for people who do not.  I heard someone on the radio briefly say how they make turkey in 2005 (our first Thanksgiving as a married couple) and I wanted to make my first turkey, so when I got home I jotted it down as best I could remember.  It is super yummy and very tender.  I love it!!!

oven baking bag
2 sticks of butter, melted
1 cup red wine
Whatever spices you like (I use salt, pepper, savory, cumin, rosemary, sage, celery seed, thyme, oragano, and basil)- 1 tsp. each
1 turkey
Combine spices into 1 melted butter stick.  Rub on turkey skin.
Put turkey (after bags are removed) in an oven baking bag (prepare the turkey according to directions that the cooking bag gives you)
mix 1 stick of melted butter with spices (again- 1 tsp. both times) and wine.  Pour mixture inside and around the turkey.
Cook the turkey according to the directions on the cooking bag!

Chicken Enchiladas

 I have to add this recipe because it is one of my personal favorites.  I am pretty sure it came from my friend, Jessica Krassow.  It is super yummy and easy!

1 lb cooked chicken
1 pkg taco seasoning
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 small cans of chopped green chilis
16 oz sour cream
your favorite shredded cheese (I like Colby Jack or Fiesta Blend)
tortillas (I use either Carb Balance tortillas or whole wheat)

Mix chicken and taco seasoning together

In a large bowl, mix soup, chilis, and sour cream

Place 1/2 of the sauce in the bottom of a 9x13 dish.  Place chicken into tortillas (just as full as you want it) and spring with cheese.  Roll them up and place them in dish.  Top with remaining sauce and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top.  Back at 325 for 30 minutes.
