A great recipe to do with turkey leftover. This Mexican leftover tukey torta or sandwich is delicious and everybody will ask for seconds!
After Thanksgiving, Christmas Dinner and New Year’s Eve Dinner, there’s so much food left in the refrigerator that we no longer know how to disguise it to transform the overheating and that the family doesn’t get bored of the same flavor.
Not counting on us already eating reheated turkey the next day, which is sometimes richer.
If you don’t know what to do with turkey leftovers, I’ll tell you that my mom, my aunts and now I get used to making turkey tortas. the same when there’s pork leg or chicken left the day before.
