Turn Turkey Into Spicy, Smoky Jambalaya, Win the Leftovers Game

As Food52 gets older (and wiser), and our archive of recipes grows, we’re making the effort to revisit some good-as-gold recipes. Today, check out a new spicy way to use up your leftover Thanksgiving turkey.

After Thanksgiving Day, I most definitely enjoy a plate or two of reheated turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy. Next, I transition to sandwiches, stuffing leftover rolls with meat, greens, and cranberry sauce. But as much as I love these classic Thanksgiving leftovers, I also love variety. There’s only so many turkey sandwiches a person can stomach.
