OK, I didn’t make these nachos on the day after Thanksgiving.  I actually made them three days after Thanksgiving.  However, the point of this recipe is to provide a different way to use leftover turkey.  Yes, turkey sandwiches are tasty, as are turkey pot pie, turkey soup, and reheated Thanksgiving dinner.  However, a little variety can make some of your Thanksgiving leftovers more interesting.

Not only do these nachos put a different spin on turkey, they also are quite simple to make and are a good use for dark or white meat.  After a day of shopping, whether it be on Black Friday or Small Business Saturday, these nachos will make a quick appetizer or light dinner. Top with an assortment of your regular nachos ingredients, such as black beans, shredded lettuce, or cheddar cheese, and you have a dish that’s sure to please.

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup salsa
  2. 1-1/2 cups cooked turkey
  3. tortilla chips
  4. toppings
Instructions
  1. Purée salsa in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a medium saucepot.
  2. Chop turkey into bite-sized pieces and add to saucepot.
  3. Stir well and place over medium heat. When sauce begins to simmer, reduce heat to low, and allow to cook for 15-20 minutes, so that meat is thoroughly warmed and the flavors of the turkey and salsa have melded.
  4. Remove pot from heat. Spread a handful of tortilla chips on a plate, and top with a heaping spoonful (or two!) of turkey.
  5. Garnish with desired toppings, and enjoy!
