The holiday season is the time of festivity wherein your dinner table is full of different delicious meals and sometimes we just can’t avoid having leftovers. I’ve been there quite a few times, I always experience having leftover smoked turkey. This year, I want to make sure no food is going to waste and I was glad when I discovered that you can still turn your leftover turkey into something incredible without using a lot of ingredients and you don’t even have to tire yourself with the process. So get your crockpots ready because this is another recipe that you can add to your list of favorite dishes. Today’s amazing Jamaican style recipe is made possible by Juliana Mcdonald on her YouTube Channel.
