We’re 15 days out from Thanksgiving, which means we're 16 days out from peak leftovers. Get in the spirit now with Buffalo Turkey Enchiladas. Originally invented using rotisserie chicken, the dish is even better with leftover roast turkey, which is transformed into a cheesy Buffalo-inspired filling, nestled into corn tortillas and baked until bubbly and cheesy. Not only is this comfort food mash-up a crowd-pleaser, it’s mostly hands-off cooking, and comes together in just 30 minutes.

But beyond the Black Friday feasting, this recipe is the ultimate weeknight dinner hack. Follow along with Food Network Kitchen’s Dana Beninati, who will be making the Buffalo enchiladas on Thursday, November 14th at 2 p.m. in a live class on the Food Network Kitchen app. You’ll find out how she transforms leftovers into a winning weekday meal or a game-day ready snack. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask all your pressing questions in the moment. Got a burning question about which hot sauce to use to get that signature Buffalo chicken flavor? Curious on how to store your bird to preserve its juiciness? Wondering the best method for shredding roasted meat? How do you roll an enchilada without losing the filling? The Food Network Kitchen team will answer your questions as you go. Plus, Beninati is a third-level sommelier, so don’t be shy about asking for wine tips, too!
