Default Wild Turkey Enchiladas

Last year my son killed a turkey and wanted to keep the legs and thighs. Not a fan of them as I have tried everything form injecting and smoking to frying to baking and nothing I tried ever made them worth the effort to eat. Then last year I put them in the crock pot and put some of the McCormick slow cooker pulled pork seasoning that I had used on pork roast and slow cooked for 6 to 8 hrs. The meat fell off the bone and shredded like pulled pork. Very rich and flavorful. My wife combined a can of cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup together and then added the shredded turkey. Winner turkey dinner.
Fast forward to this year got two turkey's opening weekend so had 4 turkey legs so into the crock pot they went. Seasoned with some smoked salt, barnacle dust, and a little blaze. Put the McCormick slow cooker pulled pork seasoning on top and let it cook 7 hrs. It was falling off the bone and easy to separate and shred. (note there is some left over will be tacos later this week).
After it was shredded added a little of the liquid from the crockpot to moisten it up some. Now its time for my wife's Pecan Cream cheese Enchiladas.

Yes, I made the same with chicken for Easter. The turkey gave a more richer flavor.

looks great and thanks for sharing. The crock pot is also the only way I have cooked turkey legs that I liked.

Tried this last night. Turned out excellent. Only way I've been able to cook the legs in order to justify it. Thanks!
