The age old question after Thanksgiving is what to do with the leftover turkey. One great way to use it is this slow cooker leftover turkey recipe. This recipe is so simple and you can easily have all the items on hand for a yummy meal the day after Thanksgiving.
You just need some canned goods, spices, and the leftover turkey. Plus any of your favorite chili toppings such as sour cream, cheese, crackers, etc.
I have this programmable crock pot which I love. It cooks for the required amount of time than just keeps the recipe warm. This means your recipe won’t get overcooked. You can head out Black Friday shopping and come home for a tasty lunch! Be sure to check out the full printable recipe below.
