Leftover Turkey. . . .

Any ideas what to do with it all?
I don't have a lot left, the dry bits will go to the dogs, the rest is going into a soup tomorrow complete with bones.
Make quesadillas and fresh guacamole.
Soup is always a treat. Add a little curry powder for a tasty, warming broth.
* White Chili Recipe (more like a soup, really.)
1 quart or more of chicken or turkey broth
2-3 cans of plain Great Northern Beans, drained
1 or 2 4 oz. cans of diced green chiles, undrained ( I use mild)
About 1 c. water (I don't use water, just more broth)
2 cups of cooked chicken or turkey, diced or shredded
1 medium to large onion, chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
Saute the onion and garlic in a splash of olive oil until tender.
Add the broth and water, beans and chiles and chicken or turkey.
Add the dry seasonings, bring to a boil and then lower temp. Cover and let simmer for about an hour.
Makes about eight delicious servings.
Day One: turkey sandwiches. Darn I love them!
Day Two: turkey enchiladas with tomatillo sauce
Day Three: if, lots of meat still remaining, pick the carcass of meat chunks.
make turkey stock; then
and make large pan of turkey tettrazini with the stock, freeze for parents
Day Four: soup with the stock. We like squash or bean soup.
My dad sent me home with half of the turkey still on the bone. I just pulled it apart and diced up dark meat and white meat and bagged it for the freezer. I left a good bit of meat on the bones which was also bagged for broth/stock. I just use it wherever I would use pre-cooked chicken.
