Turkey Fajitas

I hope every on had a Happy Thanksgiving! I know at our house we had a great day filled with family and good food, and for that I am thankful. Now I love just about every dish at Thanksgiving and many of them I enjoy them for days after-wards. My favorite leftover meal has always been a cold turkey sandwich, to the point that I often think I would ask for it as part of my last meal. But if you want something other then cold turkey sandwich and reheated mashed potato's, Campbells has a great recipe for Turkey Fajitas and even puts that left over gravy to use.

I was skeptical of a fajita recipe that askes you to mix salsa and gravy together. It just doesn't sound that appetizing to me, but I'm glad I tried this recipe because it was delicious! It's full of flavor and keeps you coming back for more.

2 jars (12oz each) Campbell's Slow Roast Turkey Gravy
1 cup Pace Picante Sauce
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 small green or red peppers, cut into 2 inch long strips (about 2 cups)
2 medium onions, sliced, (about 2 cups)
3 cups cooked turkey or chicken strips ( I used chicken strips, as I fixed this before Thanksgiving, and was very pleased with how it tasted)
12 flour tortillas (6 inch), warmed
Sliced pitted ripe olives

Stir the gravy and Picante sauce in a 2-quart saucepan.

Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the peppers and onions and cook until they're tender-crisp, stirring occasionally. Stir in 2 cups gravy mixture and the turkey. Reduce the heat to low. Cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling.

Spoon 1/3 cup turkey mixture down the center of each tortilla. Fold the tortillas around the filling. Heat the remaining gravy mixture over medium heat until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Serve with the filled tortillas. Garnish with olives.

  1. I promise you that I've never reviewed a restaurant on Yelp, fought with someone on YouTube, re-Tweeted a pic of a hot chic with her mammary glands busting out the seams, shared a link or anything of the sort, I'm simply too lazy or I don't care enough. BUT, after finding myself on your page whenever I have free time and eagerly awaiting a new blog posting I feel compelled to breakout of my digital laziness just to say thank you. I appreciate the wealth of information that you're sharing, in fact the Sniper community appreciates it. Whether it's a blog entry or a comment you post on McCarterBrown, you always bring a sense of knowledge and know-how to the table. As a new Sniper I can always count on having my various questions answered simply by digging through the archives of your blog and for that I thank you. Should we ever meet on the field you can count on me for a free beer and a chicken sandwich with waffle fries... Thanks bro! Friv kogama
