Mark's Leftover Turkey Nachos

Leftover alert!! Do you have tons of leftover turkey and are you struggling to think of a creative way to eat it up? Mark's delicious and nutritious-adjacent nachos are absolutely perfect. He combines a few fresh ingredients with your leftovers to create a filling, low-key dinner that you can enjoy post-Thanksgiving without too much effort. It is a unique use for the turkey.  I mean, I love the classic leftover sandwich, but I can only have so much.  This way you can have a no-fuss meal at home, by yourself, without your many, many relative all around.  This isn't an exact science.  Just throw in what you like, omit what you don't and there you have it.  This is our recipe for success.  Put your feet up, relax on the couch with some nachos and a cold beer. You deserve it!
