Tostadita de Thanksgiving

You obviously have leftover turkey.  This year, change it up and whip up this little tostadita de Thanksgiving rather than the typical reheat on bread.  The lemon moistens and flavors in the most unbelievable way!  Make sure to add enough salt and pepper.  They really make the flavor come alive.


  • leftover turkey
  • salt & pepper
  • lemon 
  • avocado
  • finely chopped white onion
  • cabbage (sliced thinly) (optional)

Shred the turkey a bit before covering with lemon.  Use the juice of 1 lemon per cup of shredded turkey.  Then add the salt and pepper and onion.  Add a wee bit of finely sliced cabbage if you like, or just leave it out.  Let this sit and marinate for 15-20 minutes.

Spoon onto tostadas or just eat with tortilla chips, topping with slices or chunks of avocado.  If you have nothing else, (fine!) put it on a toasted leftover Thanksgiving bun.
