Cheesy Turkey Stuffing Burritos with Spicy Cranberry Salsa

Thanksgiving leftovers take on a whole new delicious form in these easy Cheesy Turkey and Stuffing Burritos with Spicy Cranberry Salsa. This recipe was created for Old El Paso, but all opinions are my own.

Cheesy Turkey and Stuffing Burritos

Whenever people talk about Thanksgiving leftovers, and making the ubiquitous turkey sandwich piled with stuffing and cranberry sauce, I am less than enthused. And while one office cafeteria did that combo particularly well, I generally just am not that into leftovers that taste like reheated versions of themselves.

There. I said it. I might be the only person ever to be less than enthused by leftover turkey sandwiches.

But that’s not to say I don’t love Thanksgiving leftovers — I do. But I like my leftovers to be transformed into something fresh and new. It makes them seem more special — and delicious. To me, at least.

Anyone else?

Cheesy Turkey Stuffing Burritos-ready to bake

These Cheesy Turkey and Stuffing Burritos with Spicy Cranberry Salsa totally do the kind of leftover transformation I adore. Turkey and stuffing are mixed up with egg and cheese and baked into a handy tortilla bowl. But the best part? And oh my goodness — this really is the best part — is the spicy cranberry salsa which turns leftover cranberry sauce into a spicy, delicious, fresh masterpiece.

These are so good that it’s worth making extra turkey and stuffing just to enjoy them. Seriously.

Making Turkey Burritos

These are made in handy Old El Paso Stand ‘n Stuff Tortillas, which are so, so easy to work with them filling. I found these at Target, but a lot of grocery stores carry them too. And Walmart, I believe.

This recipe can be doubled for more delicious leftover fun. They may need to cook for a minute or two longer to accommodate for the additional food. For a less spicy salsa, remove the seeds and the ribs from the jalapeno before mixing with the cranberry sauce.
