Give your turkey leftovers a gentle smokey kick with a turkey salad seasoned with chipotle powder and jalapeños.
You can also use canned chipotle in adobo instead of the combination presented here of chipotle powder and jalapenos. Just add to taste. Or, if you don't want the chili heat of the jalapenos, but want the smokiness, you can used smoked paprika instead of the chipotle and jalapenos.
