Leftover Turkey Taquitos With Cranberry Salsa And Crutido

Thanksgiving: The Remix

Things I am thankful for this year:

Hot Toddies.
I have not caught a cold (so far! Knock on wood – I think its the hot toddies)
Kanye West’s Tweets.
Finding a good coffee shop.
Sriracha Popcorn.
Late night movies with Rachel.
Having Health Insurance.
Learning lots of good East Coast Words. Rachete.
The Yards Park.
Jeggings. Yes, still.
Inspirational spinning instructors.

If you were as lucky as I was this week and found yourself
with buckets of foil wrapped tidbits, leftovers from thanksgiving, you might
need a little help with the remix. Last year I made empanadas with blue cheese and butternut squash. This year I am making taquitos with cranberry salsa and a
quick crutido, for your face. yum.

Salsa Ingredients
4 TB Leftover
Cranberry Sauce
1 Red Chili,
¼ Red Onion,
1 Tomato,
½ Lemon’s

Salsa Instructions

Mince the pepper and onion, dice the tomato and blend
together with the leftover cranberry sauce and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper
to taste and set aside, the flavors with become stronger as it sits.

Crutido Ingredients
¼ of a
Cabbage, Sliced
2 Serrano
Chilies, Minced
2 Cloves
Garlic, Minced
2 TB Rice
Wine Vinegar
1 TB
Grapeseed Oil
2 Green
Onions, Diced

Crutido Instructions

Chop the cabbage, onions, chilies and garlic. Toss with oil
and vinegar. Add salt to taste.

Taquito Ingredients
Shredded Mozzarella
oil (enough to be an inch deep in your pan)
Any other interesting
leftovers you want to stuff in a taquito

Taquito Instructions

Heat about an inch of vegetable oil over medium/high heat.
Place a few spoonfuls of leftover turkey, the other leftovers and some cheese
inside the tortilla and roll tightly. Gently place them in the hot oil with the
opening down, this will allow that part to firm up first, sealing the filling
in. After about a minute and a half, flip the taquito over to fry the other
side. They should be a light golden brown. Set them onto a paper towel, some of
the oil will soak out and they will crisp up. Repeat to your heart’s content.
Serve with Crutido and Cranberry Salsa. You’re welcome.
