I never realized I could get so many dishes out of leftover turkey. My first two dishes were Pulled Cran-Turkey Slider and Lettuce Cups. Each delicious and each worth repeating, either with turkey leftovers or chicken at any time.

Tip : Use damp paper towels when heating the corn tortillas, Also, only heat 2 at a time and heat for close to a minute. The tortillas are a lot easier to roll and tuck when they are really pliable.
