Love this do-over with leftover turkey. I posted this on a group but was not sure if I was the only one who did this, so I thought I'd share the recipe.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a great way to use leftovers without seeming like you are using leftovers. I added the jalapeno juice because I like things a bit spicy. But customize this recipe to what you like. These would be great to much on while watching some football!
