Turkey Fajitas

I knew a guy who, right after Thanksgiving dinner, would get up from the table and bring put 12 large paper plates.  He would lay the paper plates out on the table and make 12 of the exact same Thanksgiving dinners and then wrap each one in plastic wrap.  Stored in the fridge he would take one plate out each day, heat it up, and find a place in the house to relish his Thanksgiving dinner by himself for 12 days!  He loved Thanksgiving dinner that much.  Most of us have leftover turkey, but really don’t want to have two weeks of Thanksgiving dinner.  Here is a good way to use up leftover turkey and also feel like you’re having a completely different meal. 


1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1 Pound Turkey Cut Into Strips

1 Sliced Onion

1 Sliced Red Bell Pepper

1/2 Cup Water

1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin

1 Teaspoon Chili Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

Hot Pepper Sauce To Taste

2 Tablespoons Chopped Fresh Cilantro

Warmed Flour Tortillas

Toppings Of Your Choice

Heat olive oil in a large-size skillet over a medium-high heat.  Add turkey (dark meat may be more moist) and brown for 2 minutes.  Add onions and red peppers.  Cook for 2 minutes.  Stir occasionally until vegetables are tender.  Stir in water, cumin, chili powder, kosher salt and pepper.  Cook for 4 minutes.  Stir frequently.  Stir in hot pepper sauce and cilantro. Cook for 1 more minute. Remove from heat and transfer to serving bowl.  Serve with warm tortillas and your favorite toppings.  Serves 4
