Turkey Club Enchiladas

When my husband brought me this recipe to try, just based on the title, I thought it was kind of strange. But then I looked at the ingredients and I knew that I could do something with it, even if I had to adapt just a few of them. After making these the other day, I have to say they were a hit, even with our pickiest eater. It was kind of funny, because neither of us thought she would like it, so we gave her half of an enchilada, she was the first one done (very rare) and asked for more (even more rare!). This was a fun recipe that I will be making again!

Turkey Club Enchiladas

8 bacon strips, chopped (I used the pre-cooked bacon from Costco)
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped sweet red pepper (about 1 small one)
10 ounces thinly sliced deli turkey, shredded
2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
10 flour tortillas ( I used uncooked from Costco, otherwise warm them so you can roll them)
Alfredo Sauce (I doubled it) or substitute 10 ounces jarred Alfredo and 1/4 cup milk
1 can diced tomatoes, well drained or substitute diced fresh tomatoes
2 cups shredded lettuce (optional)

In a large skillet, saute the bacon, red pepper and onion just until the bacon is crisp and the vegetables are tender. The onions should be approaching transparent. Drain, if using pre-cooked bacon it's not necessary, and set aside to cool slightly.

In a large bowl, combine turkey, 1 cup cheese, salt, pepper and the bacon mixture. Place 1/2 cup of this mixture in the center of a tortilla and roll up. Place in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish that's been sprayed with non-stick spray, seam side down. Continue with the rest of the tortillas and filling. Pour the Alfredo sauce over the top.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and bake for 5 to 10 minutes longer, just until it's melted. Garnish with lettuce and tomatoes.
