If you STILL have turkey leftover from Thanksgiving, you better hurry and figure out a way to eat it soon before it goes bad. Studies show that leftover turkey is good in the fridge for a maximum of 5 days. But, maybe you can't fathom the thought of eating ANY more turkey. Try making my favorite post Thanksgiving meal. Leftover Turkey Echiladas.

I understand that you are probably sick and tired of turkey. Lots of families make turkey sandwiches or days and days after the holiday. Some families even resort to eating turkey noodle soup over and over until the bird is finally gone. But, this recipe is so good, that I look forward to it almost as much as the big holiday meal. Thats right, I prefer this over all the mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberries,, green bean casserole and even the turkey itself. Guy Fieri has a recipe that will knock your socks off. Try it, and thank me later.
