This poses not only a big problem for agriculture but also in the poultry and meat processing plants and all the food industry in general.
In many parts of Mexico, no special occasion is complete without turkey cooked in mole poblano. Since the authentic version is quite a production, here is a slow cooker version easier to make and delicious nonetheless. Serve with hot tortillas, fluffy white rice, and creamed corn.
The filling for this crepe is one of the signature trios in Mexican cooking: poblano peppers, squash, and corn. Allspice brings out the exuberance of the poblano chiles. Don’t let the number of chiles in the recipe worry you; they are tamed in this ménage of sweet corn and subtle squash. The crepes are light, and the sauce is foamy and ethereal, with a tangy-minty flavor.

Soon, according to The Junk Food Isle, Oreos will add another tasty treat to its growing cookie kingdom: Coconut and Salted Caramel Oreo Thins.
Response to the announcement has been mixed. While some argue that Oreo Thins are mere offshoots of an already great cookie, others love the thin cookie movement, which ameliorates at least some of the guilt they feel after eating the whole stack.
