For Christmas I made a 26 lb turkey for 2 adults and 3 little kids. Yeah — I HAVE A LOT OF Turkey left over and have been making sandwiches galore with the leftover meat and then decided I wanted to make burritos for dinner. AND my parents were here over the New Year and brought us several packages of Udi’s Gluten Free tortillas which I needed to use up. So burritos it was!
I took a gallon size ziploc filled with leftover turkey and dumped it into the crockpot with 2 cans of tomato sauce and 1 packet of Trader Joe’s Taco Seasoning and let it cook for 4 hours.
I opened the lid and the meat had a wonderful aroma and shredded as soon as I touched it with the fork!
Next I warmed up the tortillas, spread a very generous amount of sour cream on each tortilla, topped with refried beans, shredded turkey, sliced avocado and rice. Rolled the tortillas and cut them in half.
I love making something creative for dinner from leftovers the night before. I had made homemade sushi and had a lot of rice leftover in the fridge and basically heated that up, too, and added it to the burritos as well.
Regardless, I had A LOT of shredded turkey leftover and 2 more packages of tortillas left so a few nights later I made Enchiladas with Sour Cream Sauce with the shredded turkey and extra tortillas!
