Make It

Kraft Kitchens Tips
Store any leftover turkey mixture in airtight container in refrigerator. Store any leftover tortillas in airtight container at room temperature. When ready to serve, spoon turkey mixture onto tortillas; sprinkle with cheese. Heat in toaster oven or microwave. Continue as directed.
Fun Idea
Serve with fruit nachos for dessert. Spray additional flour tortillas with cooking spray; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Cut into wedges; place on baking sheet. Bake at 400°F for 4 min. or until crisp. Top with sliced strawberries or other cut-up seasonal fruits and spoonfuls of chilled prepared JELL-O Fat Free Sugar Free Instant Pudding.
