Chili con queso is typically served as an appetizer with corn chips, tortilla chips or vegetables. By borrowing this idea and combining it with a turkey wrap, a new dish emerges. When assembling the dish, the sauce may seem too generous, but it eventually thickens and provides enough to spoon luxuriously over the rolls.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup turkey stock
  • 1 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups shredded old Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Filling:
  • 2 cups cooked turkey diced
  • 2 tomato seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped green olive
  • 3 green onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and chopped
  • 8 7-inch flour tortilla

Method

In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; fry onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes.

Add flour; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Whisk in stock and milk and bring to boil, stirring; reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add 2-1/2 cups (625 mL) of the cheese, salt and pepper; set aside.

Filling: In large bowl, combine turkey, tomatoes, olives, onions, coriander and jalape?epper; stir in 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the cheese sauce. Spoon 3/4 cup (175 mL) into greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish.

Divide remaining filling evenly among centres of each tortilla; roll up loosely. Place, seam side down, on sauce. Spoon remaining sauce over top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.)

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until golden and bubbly, 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
