Turkey Tamales

If you’re looking for something different to do with that leftover turkey this year you might want to try your hand at some Turkey Tamales with guajillo-cranberry mole (pronounced moe-lay).  The Homesick Texan is probably my favorite Tex-Mex site. It’s creator Lisa Fain demonstrates a lot of love for all sorts of homestyle Texas and Tex-Mex dishes as a New Yorker transplanted from Texas.  If you don’t want to go to the trouble of making a mole based tamale, as it is after all a lot of work, you might try her Chipotle chicken taco using turkey instead. Away from her site,  Turkey & Balsamic Onion Quesadillas will work fine.

Instead of getting tired of turkey I may cook another one just to have enough for all of the great after Thanksgiving leftover turkey recipes.
