LOVE YOUR LEFTOVERS: Chipotle turkey skillet

RECIPES0 comments

Some people love leftovers and other people, well, not so much. If you ere on the side of, not so much, this recipe is for you.  Using turkey leftovers from a big holiday meal can be transformed with the addition of a couple key ingredients.  The popular tex-mex flavours like chipotle, black beans and salsa transform the flavour of turkey leftovers.  The idea is to freeze this recipe so you can enjoy an entirely re-invented dinner during a busy weeknight.


3 cups shredded cooked turkey meat

2 cups leftover mashed potatoes

1 cup store bought salsa

2 tbsp chopped chipotle in adobe sauce

1 can (19oz) black beans

1 cup shredded cheese


  1. Mix everything in a large Ziploc freezer bag, remove air, flatten and seal.

  2. When you want to cook the burrito skillet remove the bag from the freezer and allow the mixture to thaw (3hrs in fridge).

  3. Preheat oven to 350F

  4. Dump the entire contents of the bag into a 12” oven proof skillet and scatter another ¾ cup of shredded cheese on top.

  5. Bake on the centre rack for 30min. Turn the broiler to high and broil for 3min or until the cheese is brown and bubbly.

  6. Serve.
