Southwest Turkey Sandwiches

AKA, a great way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers without eating the same meal ten times.

Even when we’re not hosting Thanksgiving, we seem to end up with leftover turkey. I don’t mind replaying the meal once, but after that I start looking for different ways to use up whatever is remaining. These easy sandwiches are a great opportunity to use up some of that turkey.

I’m planning to make these again the day after Thanksgiving. My sister and I always do an early morning shopping marathon, so ten minutes of prep is about all I can handle by the time dinner rolls around!
