Roasted Tomatillo Sauce

Fill a cookie sheet with halved tomatillos and hot peppers to taste. Roast in a 300-degree oven for an hour. Puree in blender with a few tomatoes and a little olive oil. Store in fridge in a container with a tight lid. This seems to keep well for several weeks. Add generously to whatever you're cooking -- simmer with half a cup of water, leftover rice and pinto beans.

Orange-Chipotle Turkey Nachos

Quick & easy Thanksgiving leftover recipe:

- shredded cooked turkey
- sliced onion
- orange
- chipotle powder
- cumin
- olive oil

Saute onions in olive oil (I used leftover from Thanksgiving prep) until they start to soften. Add shredded turkey and spices. Squeeze all the juice from the orange and simmer until absorbed.
