Here’s one way to use up your leftover turkey. It’s especially nice that it has a different flavor profile from standard Thanksgiving fare, but will work even with a Thanksgiving-flavored bird. I achieve the fresh cilantro by freezing it in chicken broth when I have extra. One ice cube is basically 2 Tbsp.
We serve Tabasco, chives, diced tomato, cheddar cheese, and sour cream on the side. We often have cornbread.
