What to Do With Turkey Leftovers

Here’s a nice easy recipe for using up the leftover turkey in your future!  Turkey is so good for you – a lean protein source with lots of B vitamins and zinc.I like to roast one before Thanksgiving, because the leftovers are so nice to have around.

Turkey Tostadas

4 (8-inch) whole-wheat tortillas

Cooking spray

1 (16-ounce) can fat-free refried black beans

3/4 cup bottled chunky salsa, divided

1 1/2 cups shredded cooked turkey

1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled queso fresco or farmer cheese

1 cup chopped tomato

1/2 avocado, peeled and cut into 12 slices

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

2. Spray both sides of each tortilla with cooking spray; arrange on large baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 3 1/2 minutes on each side or until lightly toasted.

3. Combine beans and 1/4 cup salsa in a microwave-safe bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH 4 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring after 2 minutes; set aside.

4. Combine turkey and 1/2 cup salsa in a microwave-safe bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on HIGH 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

5. Divide bean mixture among tortillas; top with turkey mixture. Sprinkle with queso fresco; top with tomato. Arrange 3 avocado slices over each tostada; sprinkle each evenly with cilantro.  Yield: 4 servings
