    This was a perfect recipe for using up leftover turkey and I am sure chicken could be used also. I followed the recipe also exact but did use some white meat turkey as well. The only thing that I changed was the amount of hot peppers I used since we don't like things hot. (only added one instead of 3) Had plenty of leftover sauce and will attempt to freeze for another time although I am concerned about how well the cream cheese will hold up frozen. If anyone has ever tried it, let me know how it turned out. Will be saving this recipe for when leftovers are around!

    This was fantastic! We had a lot of leftover filling but will gladly use it in burritos. Best way to use up turkey!
