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.

This is a great way to use leftovers without seeming like you are using leftovers. We added jalapeno juice because we like things a bit spicy. But customize this recipe to what you like. These taquitos would be great for munching watching some football!
