    Geema's Note:

    This recipe makes an excellent filling for many kinds of Mexican recipes...burritos, tacos, or casseroles. Our favorite is to simply spoon this delicious mixture right from the pot into a soft tortilla and top with fresh cilantro, cheese, tomatoes and sour cream...roll it up and eat our fill after a long day.

      We don't like dark meat, so this was an excellent use. I cut up a full raw turkey, took both legs and thighs off and threw them in the crockpot. Cooked them on low for 12 hours. I added two jalapenos, two cans of green chilis, and one large spanish onion. It is very moist and tender. I had to drain the liquid because of all the fat, but otherwise it had a nice flavor. This is a gem for utilizing all parts of a turkey. Thank you

      I've made this twice now, once using leftover turkey breast meat from Thanksgiving, and once using chicken breast meat. Very tasty, and, as T-Reed noted, easy to customize for your family's personal seasoning preferences!

      I used skinned turkey thighs and kept everything else the same. This was very good, however I think it could have used a bit more in the seasoning department. What's great is that it's not so overly seasoned as to not be customizable. :) The cook time was about 7 hours from start to finish in our crock pot though I could have left it in longer to thicken it up a little more. Next time I will add a bit of salt and maybe a bit more heat to satisfy our tastes. Thanks!
