Turkey Rice Casserole

Taste of Home Magazine, Premiere Edition
Servings: 6



The recipe for this creamy and comforting casserole came from my aunt as a way to use leftover turkey. I love it so much, however, that I don't wait for leftovers to make it. The green chilies provide the memorable flavor. -Tamy Baker, Kearney, Nebraska
