Turkey Fiesta Dip

On the Menu Today~
{Our Favorite Recipe from Last Thanksgiving}
Turkey Fiesta Dip🦃

Some recipes are worth repeating and
this one definitely is.....
Turkey Fiesta Dip is fantastic and
I can't think of a better way to use up 
left-over Thanksgiving turkey, than in this dip!

We always have the usual Thanksgiving "line up" or
"family favorites"....Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy,
Pumpkin Pie, Cranberries...but every Thanksgiving,
I try to add a new recipe to the "line up"......
some recipes make the cut and 
are added to the line-up next year,
while others become part of that,
"never again for Thanksgiving" list and are soon forgotten.

I am happy to say that Turkey Fiesta Dip,
made the "cut" last year and then some. 
This dip is great to serve during football games,
super bowl parties and well, just because. It's that good!
Don't have left-over turkey?
No problem....pick up a rotisserie chicken!

When you are all turkeyed out and
you couldn't possibly eat another turkey sandwich...
reach for this's a delicious way to re-invent turkey🦃
