Turkey Leftover Recipes


It is a few days after Thanksgiving and you have had turkey sandwiches, turkey hash, you're thinking "not delicious turkey again!" Try these recipes to make your leftover turkey good to the last bite.

Turkey Chili Recipe

Turn leftover turkey into a tasty cheese topped chili. Your family won't know this turkey chili is made with leftover turkey unless you tell them. The recipe calls for cubed turkey, if your leftover can't be cubed, just pull enough to make a pound and cut into bite-sized pieces.

INGREDIENTS

1 lb. cubed cooked turkey (use light and dark turkey)
1-15 can kidney beans, drained
1 large can (28 ounces) chopped tomatoes
4 oz. tomato sauce
2 small jalapeno peppers,* finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 level teaspoon chili powder
2 small green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1 medium white onion, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
2 teaspoon crushed fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano
3 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded (optional)
vegetable oil for sauteing
Salt to taste

DIRECTIONS

In large pot pour a small amount of vegetable oil (2 tablespoon) and heat. Heat should be high enough to saute vegetables. Add green bell pepper and onion to pot and saute until tender. Then add tomatoes, beans, tomato sauce, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper, chili powder, jalapeno peppers, salt and bring to a light boil. Lower heat and add turkey; continue cooking over low heat for 1/2 hour to 45 minutes. Spoon into bowls and top with cheese. Serves 6 to 8.

Hint
*Use rubber gloves when handling jalapeno peppers.

Individual baked dressing cups

If you have enough dressing or stuffing, by any name it is delicious, make muffins. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 6 or 8 tin muffin pan with butter or spray with Pam or another cooking oil and scoop dressing into the tins. Top with buttered bread crumbs and bake until heated thoroughly and dressing forms a slight crust around the edges and crumbs start to turn golden. This could take anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the muffin tin. Dark pans will cause ingredients to bake faster.
