One-Skillet Turkey and Roasted Green Chile Pot Pie

In less than 30 minutes this Mexican pot pie can be made. It’s a little bit country, and a little bit Mexican. The flavors remind me of biscuits and gravy, but with a spicy kick. Shredded turkey cooked in a scrumptious, creamy, and spicy sauce topped with moist and flavorful buttery biscuits is comfort food at its finest.
