    Got Turkey? How about shredded turkey for a delicous taco or chimichanga. No one will guess it is turkey. My DH hates turkey but gobbled this up it really takes on the flavor of the ingredients.

      I love this! I do it a little differently. Put the carcass in a pot of water to cover, bring it to a boil, and let it cook down for about an hour or so. Save the broth for another use. Shred the chicken. Saute onions in a little oil, then pour shredded chicken into pan. Pour tomato sauce & salsa in, mixing. I just season to taste, adding Abodo (an all-purpose Mexican seasoning), onion powder, garlic powder, oregano and cumin. I then let it cook down for about an hour, stirring frequently. What isn't consumed at dinner, I save for chicken taco salads the next day!!

      This is a good way to use up leftover chicken. I only had a little over a pound, so I used 1 tsp. of minced onion, garlic salt and oregano. I didn't use any pepper strips. I used 1/4 cup of salsa. Very good taste. Thank you!
