Thanksgiving Leftovers Enchiladas


I’m just gonna pop in once this week since I’m pretty sure everyone is focused on one thing and one thing only. Thanksgiving.

Hopefully by now your menus are set (but if not check out all of the recipes I posted last week for Thanksgiving week!), and you have everything you need for the stuffing, the cranberry sauce, the green bean casserole, the mashed potatoes, and of course, the turkey and gravy!

But do you know what you’re going to do with all the leftovers?!  I have *the* tastiest idea for you today! Thanksgiving Leftovers Enchiladas.

Now, these aren’t the leftovers with actual enchilada flavors.  It’s the concept of enchiladas, but with all the flavors of Thanksgiving leftovers.

Essentially, you pack in all of your leftovers into flour tortillas, cover them with leftover gravy and cheese, and bake until they are bubbly and cheesy.

Print Rate
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes


  • large flour tortillas
  • leftover mashed potatoes
  • leftover stuffing
  • leftover turkey
  • leftover green beans any kind!
  • ~1 cup of leftover gravy*
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • leftover cranberry sauce
  • *the leftover gravy that we made was pretty solid the next day due to the fat. I added it back to a small saucepan along with 2 tablespoons of flour and 1/2 cup of milk that I whisked together until smooth and cooked over medium-low heat until it was gravy consistency again.


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a 9x13" baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In the middle of each tortilla, spread ~2 tablespoons of mashed potatoes. The measurements here are very rough. If you'd like more mashed potatoes, add more. Just kind of estimate to your liking.
  • Top with a couple spoonfuls of stuffing, some turkey, and green beans.
  • Roll up and place seam side down in the baking dish until the baking dish is full.
  • Cover with gravy and sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, until cheese is melted.
  • Serve topped with leftover cranberry sauce.
  • Enjoy!
