This is my mom's recipe that she demonstrated on television back in the early 1950's when T.V. was brand new. It was her way of dealing with the turkey and ham leftovers after Thanksgiving. It has withstood the test of time in our family!!

* I prefer mozzerella and colby, mixed

This sandwich is great! Turkey Soft Tacos are also good.

1lb Turkey cubed

1 can Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies (I like the hot) Careful!

Choped Onion
Chilli Powder
Garlic to taste
Salt and Black Pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in a hot pan with Olive oil preheated and cook till most of the water is gone. Serve with Flour Tortillas, Sour Cream, Guacamole and jalapenos. ENJOY!

No Thanksgiving is complete without these sandwiches for leftovers the next day! Phenomenal!

Mmm mmm delicious! It's the perfect thing to do with leftovers. I love the almonds and celery with the mayo. I wouldn't have thought to put them in, but it really makes it feel like a treat instead of just a plain old leftover sandwich.

Do they hold up well in a warm oven after baking??

What's in season?
