Turkey Chilaquiles


Turkey Chilaquiles

4 to 6 Servings


This is a dinner version of the popular Mexican breakfast dish. Crema mexicana (a cultured cream similar to crème fraîche or sour cream) and crumbled queso fresco (a fresh white cheese) are available in the cheese and deli sections of many supermarkets and at Latin markets. Diced cooked chicken can be used instead of turkey.

Preheat oven to 450°F. Heat oil in heavy large ovenproof skillet. Add 1-1/4 cups onion; sauté until onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add turkey and green chiles; sauté 3 minutes. Stir in salsa; simmer until heated through, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in chips. Sprinkle with cheese. Place skillet in oven; bake just until cheese melts, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup onion and cilantro; drizzle with crema mexicana.
