Thanksgiving Leftover

What did you do with your leftover turkey?

We boiled the carcass with some water, carrots, parsley and half an onion for 2 hours. After draining the stock, we were left with 3 and a half quarts of roasted turkey stock.

Two of those quarts went into the freezer and the other one and a half went into a pot of turkey posole.

I just diced an onion and sauted it in a TBSP of olive oil. Then I added half a can of tomato paste, 5 minced garlic cloves, 1/2 tsp of cumin, oregano and chili powder along with a bay leaf. I sauted this until the tomato paste got a bit of brown coloring. Then I added the stock and cooked it for 30 mins. I added a drained can of hominy (29 oz) and shredded turkey. Salt to taste and then serve with diced avocado, sour cream, sliced cabbage, diced white onion, cilantro, lemon and tortilla chips.

This was a perfect leftover meal for our rainy day today.
