    Hubby liked it, but it was too spicy for me. I would try it again with regular monterey jack.

    I made this for potluck using leftover Thanksgiving bird. Nobody said "turkey again!" I made the sauce using pepperjack for the monterey jack. I did leave off the tomato because of a few fussy eaters, but everyone enjoyed this. Though it doesn't say in the recipe, I cut the turkey into bite size pieces and crumbled the bacon and sprinkled it over the sauce for easier serving. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks for posting a keeper!


I'm a true blooded Texan, third generation. I work at a college and love to spend my free time with friends and famliy. I love to give'm lots of love and good food! Paula Deen's cookbooks are one of my favorites but I also love cookbooks that are compiled from church groups and clubs that are selling them as a fundraiser, they are always filled with tried and true family favorites. I have even helped with a few of these myself. One of my passions is helping with children. I worked in a school district for many years and still volunteer helping in my daughter's 3rd grade classroom. (I'm proud to say she's the teacher, Baylor grad 2004!)I guess my biggest pet peeve is people that complain about things but don't try to be part of helping with the problem. I was taught you have no right to complain when you are not willing to help make things better for the next ones to come along.
