Turkey Burritos: Classic Eats from 2014

For those of us who celebrate Thanksgivings, we are all-too-familiar with the main contribution that leftover turkey has to offer.

That’s right, endless turkey sandwiches. 🥪

Of course, how you use your leftover turkey is a matter that should be between you and your own personal stash.

Heating leftover turkey with fried bell peppers and fried onions.

But if you like the sounds of cooked turkey, fried onions, bell peppers, salsa and sour cream snuggly tucked inside a tortilla wrap, then this leftover turkey play might be of interest to you.

There is nothing crazy in terms of how to make or time-required.

You know, it’s reasonable – like making a really good toasted turkey sandwich! Enjoy!

1/2 cup shredded cheese
