The Best Leftover Turkey Recipe Ever–or Is It?

With turkey being the main dish for Thanksgiving and unless you have a mob at your house, you’re going to have some leftovers. So, you come up with interesting ways to eat the leftover turkey. For instance, turkey soup, turkey sandwiches, turkey pot pie, turkey omelets or turkey tetrazzini or however else you think you use what’s left. And of course you want to be safe. The Mayo Clinic advises that if leftovers aren’t eaten in four days, they should be frozen or thrown out.

The best recipe I’ve run across is one for “Turkey Salad Tortillas” created by Pauline Hershberger of Lott, Texas. It’s my favorite because I love Mexican food for one, and secondly, I love easy-to-prepare dinners. Here’s the recipe from
2 cups cubed cooked turkey
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 (2.25 ounce) can sliced ripe olives, drained
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup picante sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 (6 inch) flour tortillas
In a bowl, combine the first eight ingredients; mix well. Spoon about 1/2 cuP filling off center on each tortilla. Fold sides and ends over filling, then roll up. Place in a shallow microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and filling is hot.
Yum! Yum! Makes you want to say grace again to say “thanks again for the turkey”!
