Awesome! Best with chicken instead.

Delicious! I added black beans as well and omitted the avocado as we don't like it. This is definitely going to be a go-to leftover turkey recipe!

Didn't have any leftover turkey and couldn't get turkey breast at store, subbed with chicken breast. Cut and uncooked them for about 5 min. and added them in when the recipe called for it.

I, too, added a can of drained black beans, and used canned corn instead of frozen. I used ground turkey, and 2 cans of Rotel tomatoes instead of regular diced... Thus skipped the diced chilis. Really Good. Spicier than I expected, but that's a good thing!

Would not add thyme but I did add my taco seasoning for more Mexican version instead of the seasoning listed. My seasoning does have all except the thyme and more. It is a good base to jump off and adjust to your taste.

Very good. I added a can of drained black beans to make it heartier. Delicious!
