Tortas de Pavo y Aguacate – Turkey and Avocado Sandwich Recipe

Now that Thanksgiving is over, what do we do with the leftover turkey?  Freshly cooked or leftover turkey makes wonderful sandwiches, Mexican style.  Use bolillos (oval Mexican sandwich rolls) or French sandwich rolls.  Cooked chicken can be substituted for the turkey.

  • 1 cup (packed) shredded or chopped cooked deli or leftover turkey meat
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, plus extra to spread on the rolls
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
  • 4 oval Mexican sandwich rolls (bolillos) or other sandwich rolls, split lengthwise
  • 1 large ripe tomato, very thinly sliced
  • 1 large avocado (Hass variety preferred), peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup finely shredded lettuce
  1. In a medium bowl mix together the turkey, 3 tablespoons of the mayonnaise, lime juice, salt, and pepper.  Set aside.
  2. Spread a little mayonnaise on each cut side.  Cover each bottom roll half with 1/4 of the turkey mixture.  Top with tomato, avocado, and lettuce.  Cover with the roll tops and serve.
