Left Over Turkey

Okay, so left over turkey is fine…but I like to dress it in other things.

You need:

Left over turkey. I used about 1/4 of breast of a 23lb Turkey. Chop it up.

Salsa kit. If your poor excuse for a grocery store doesn’t have these, you need:

3 roma or other small tomatoes
1 shallot
1 jalapeno
4 cloves garlic
1 lime

For the side you need:

1 head cauliflower
cheese, shredded.

Fill a pot with a lid about 1/4 of the way with water. Chop cauliflower in quarters, removing stem, leaves, and the core. Place in pot, put on lid. Turn heat to medium. When it starts to boil turn heat down to the next line. In about 10 minutes, open lid, stick a fork in it. If it slides in like butter, it’s done. Drain.

Put turkey in a frying pan with a little oil. Chop finely: garlic, shallot, tomatoes, and jalapeno. Remember to take out the seeds and white stuff if you want it to be mild. Use Gloves. Add the finely chopped mash to the pan. Put the heat on medium and give it a stir.

Chop lime in half. Squeeze over pan. Stir, repeat till lime looks dead. Shave off a bit of the skin into the pan. Use a peeler, not a knife…unless you are an expert. Men, being a man doesn’t make you an expert.

Stir occasionally until it looks done to you. I tend to stop cooking the moment the tomatoes start to wilt. No crunch but you still have to chew them.

Put on plate with cauliflower. Sprinkle on cheese and microwave for 30 seconds.

It’s probably good on rice.
