In my mother's house, tortillas were the typical Friday meal; they were the perfect solution for using all the extra food from the week. In this recipe, I did the same thing with my Thanksgiving leftovers. You can modify the recipe according to what you have on hand.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz finely chopped turkey
  • 1 cup cooked rice or pasta
  • 2 cups leftover corn casserole or stewed corn
  • 1 cup leftover mushroom casserole or stewed mushrooms
  • 1 cup grated Monterrey jack cheese or similar, optional
  • 4 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 jar (25.5-oz) Muir Glen™ pasta sauce (I recommend the “Italian Herb” one)

Directions

  • 1
    In a medium-sized bowl, combine the chopped turkey, cooked rice (or pasta), leftover casserole (or stews) and cheese. Stir well with a fork.
  • 2
    In a separate bowl, beat the eggs, adding salt and pepper, by hand with a fork for one minute.
  • 3
    Pour the mixture over the combined leftovers and mix thoroughly.
  • 4
    Next, heat one tablespoon of oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium-high heat. Transfer the prepared leftovers into the pan and press down lightly to form an evenly shaped tortilla.
  • 5
    Lower the heat to medium and let cook for 20 minutes or until the surface appears fully cooked.
  • 6
    You can then brown the tortilla in the oven for five minutes or use a plate to flip it and brown the other side in the skillet.
  • 7
    Heat the pasta sauce in a small pot.
  • 8
    When ready, serve the tortilla hot and topped with the sauce.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    If the casserole or stew used in this recipe already contains cheese, no additional cheese is required.
  • tip 2
    When cooking your tortilla, avoid turning up the heat to speed up the process-you'll only finish with a burnt bottom and uncooked top!
