  • 100 g shredded turkey
  • 4 tbsp homemade BBQ sauce
  • 40 g cheddar cheese grated
  • 150 g leftover vegetables chopped


  • Mix the turkey and BBQ sauce together.
  • Spread on half of each of the tortillas.
  • Top with chopped vegetables.

  • Repeat with the second. Fold them over and then put them in a dry pan.
  • Gently cook for 2 minutes each side and carefully flip.


  • Swap the BBQ sauce for some salsa or cranberry sauce for even more of a festive twist.
  • You can use cheddar, or add some other cheeses leftover from the cheeseboard.
  • Give these a green veggie boost by adding some shredded spinach.
  • Don't have turkey? You can use leftover shredded chicken instead.
