Anyway my Bunco Party this week was fun and several asked for the recipes, so here they are: (We all 12 had a good time, and you can add your own drink recipes--mine went well with the fruit salad!)

1 tsp. dried oregano
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp pepper
6 large flour tortillas warmed ( I did 30 seconds in microwave)

¼ c sliced ripe olives
For sauce, Place first 6 ingredients in a food processor; cover and pulse until blended. Set aside.
2 In large skillet, cook the turkey, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Remove from heat and stir in salsa, cornmeal and seasonings.
Spoon 1/3 cup turkey mixture down the center of each tortilla; top with 2 T cheese.( I used more) Roll up and place seam side down in a greased baking dish. (I used 9 x 13”) Spoon corn sauce mixture over the top; sprinkle with olives and remaining cheese.
Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 5-10 minutes longer or until heated through.
