Help Me Make a Mexican-Inspired Thanksgiving Feast!

Good Questions

Q: I am celebrating Thanksgiving with my family in Palm Springs this year. I think we should take advantage of the ready availability of Mexican ingredients to inspire the menu. I'd love to hear some riffs on this idea that will help me satisfy the Thanksgiving purists in my family...

....who need stuffing, sweet potatoes, etc. And! we have one vegetarian, so we need to include him too. This is also just a selfish attempt to get some mole on the table for the turkey (my favorite combo.) Thanks so much for any suggestions.

Editor: Courtney, that sounds so delicious and appealing! (And Palm Springs — lovely.) I do love the idea of these flautas with turkey inside (maybe as a Thanksgiving leftovers recipe?).

Readers, what would you suggest? Any ideas?
