Tequila Turkey Fettuccini Recipe

Leftover Turkey

It happens every year. You have a great Thanksgiving feast with all the family, everyone has a great time and then they go home. Now you are saying to yourself, what in the world am I going to do with all this leftover turkey? You could make soup – maybe, or hot turkey sandwiches – again, or you could try something a little different this year. How about something with tequila?

We found this great recipe courtesy of Guy Fieri over on the Food Network for a

5 ounces turkey breast, cooked, sliced
1-ounce IZKALI® Reposado Tequila
4 ounces heavy cream

2 tablespoons diced Roma tomato, for garnish
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


In saute pan with high heat, add olive oil, onions, jalapeno and saute until translucent. Add garlic and continue to saute for 2 minutes. Add turkey, lightly mix ingredients, careful not to break turkey up to much.

Nest pasta on plate, pour sauce over pasta. Lay sprigs of cilantro over top, sprinkle tomatoes on top, and crack pepper around the rim of the plate.
