This is SO good! Probably the best way ever to use up cooked turkey. And I didn’t even have all the ingredients (peppers & tomatoes). This also reminds me of something I’ve had before – some ladies I know place this sort of mixture in puff pastry – really good!
Thank you Nelya for your feedback! so happy to hear that you enjoyed it as well! This is not a very popular way to use leftovers, but so so delicious!
