In the meantime, grease a casserole dish and crumble tortillas into the bottom, layer half of the turkey over the tortillas, layer half of the soup mixture over the turkey, layer half of the olives over the soup mixture, layer half of the salsa verde over the olive and layer half of the cheese over the salsa. Repeat layers and end with cheese.

Where do I begin? I lost my mother-in-law in October and then I lost my father on November 30th. I’ve been in a tailspin for these last couple of months. I usually bake to the nines during the Christmas season. That did not happen this year. I was just not really into it. I recently started cooking for the Kelso Senior Center. I’m really enjoying that and it keeps me busy.
I created this recipe a while back when I had a ton of leftover turkey. You can substitute chicken or whatever you’d like for this recipe. You don’t have to use green salsa. I love recipes. I truly do, but, rarely, do I follow a recipe. That’s the beauty of cooking, you can custom tailor to fit your needs.
Until we meet up in February, keep cooking and PEACE!
