Leftover Turkey Stuffed Peppers

Transform  your Holiday leftovers into a Mexican fiesta. These peppers are stuffed with all your thanksgiving leftovers. Add taco seasoning and black beans and you have a fiesta worthy meal. 

These peppers are cooked in your slow cooker, got to love that! It makes it easy and you can let it cook while you do other things.

Do not get me wrong I love thanksgiving leftovers, but after day 4 or 5, it starts to get old. Why not change it up a bit and take some of those leftovers and change the flavor profile. I love gravy, but not 5 days in a row. Make you taste buds happy and your wallet too.. Most of this stuff you probably already have in your pantry. Also, this freezes well to so that is a win win for everyone!
