After thanksgiving or Christmas, when the sides and desserts are long gone, but you're still left with a mountain of turkey meat, what do you do? Zazz it up into something completely different! This recipe is easy and quick, but full of flavor. If you can't eat 2 pies quickly enough, you can freeze half the filling for another night. Even easier!
