Thanksgiving Turkey Taquitos
by Chef Simon Webster
2 cups turkey meat
1 cup stuffing
1 cup assort side dishes (potatoes, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts, green beans, corn or whatever else was served)
8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tbs vegetable oil
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs cranberry sauce
In a food processor chop all ingredients but chop separately. Place in mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper and stir together.
Lay tortilla flat on a work surface. Add 1/2 cup of turkey mixture across the middle of the tortilla leaving a 1 inch border. Fold the bottom third of the tortilla up over the filling. Tuck in both sides and roll up to the top of the tortilla to close. Place on a plate seam side down. Repeat with remaining filling and tortillas.
Place a skillet over high heat and add the oil. When oil is hot add the taquitos a few at a time. Brown on all sides until crispy and golden.
To make the sauce combine the mayonnaise and cranberry sauce. Serve with taquitos.
