Roast turkeyThanksgiving is one of the very best holidays. It is a time for delicious dining and giving thanks for all that we have. It is also a very tradition challenged time for trying new twists to old favorites. With that thought in mind, I would like to tempt you with my favorite dressing for turkey. It definitely has a Southwestern twist. The basis is blue cornbread flavored with pinon nuts, green chile and sherry. Sometimes I have used butter toasted pecans and added sausage for a heartier version.

 With this issue, I thought you might like some of my very favorite turkey leftover chilis. The Margarita Splash Chili is from my Quicy and Easy cookbook and the others are from my newest Chili Madness cookbook. They are each quick, and fun to make and wonderful for busy holiday dining.
