Join us this month as one of your favorite Mexican restaurants explores some delicious and creative ways to transform your leftover turkey into mouthwatering Mexican-inspired dishes!

Turkey Tacos with Cranberry Salsa

Start by shredding your leftover turkey into bite-sized pieces. Warm up corn or flour tortillas and fill them with the turkey. Top it off with a zesty cranberry salsa made with fresh cranberries, cilantro, red onion, lime juice, and a touch of honey. The combination of savory turkey and tangy cranberry salsa creates a perfect balance of flavors!

Turkey Enchiladas

Roll up your sleeves and prepare some turkey enchiladas. Mix shredded turkey with black beans, corn, and a blend of your favorite cheeses. Roll the mixture into corn tortillas and place them in a baking dish. Cover the enchiladas with a rich and spicy red enchilada sauce, then bake until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Garnish with chopped green onions and cilantro for a burst of freshness.
