BBQ Seasoned Turkey Tacos

We love Taco Tuesday at our house, so we are documenting our weekly taco recipes.

Similar to leftover ham after Christmas, we generally find ourselves with a lot of left over turkey after Thanksgiving. So much so that I have taken to portioning and freezing turkey meat when I am putting the leftovers away to preserve the meat for another use in the future.

For this recipe, I used a BBQ rub as the seasoning on the turkey meat to give it a different flavor overall. This can also be made with chicken seasoned with a BBQ rub.

  • 1lb leftover turkey meat from a whole roasted turkey
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Seasonings: BBQ rub
  • Corn tortillas, olive oil for griddle
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed, seasoned with BBQ rub and a little olive oil.
  • Toppings: shredded cheddar, avocado, cilantro, thinly sliced radish

Cut up the turkey and add to a non-stick skillet with the seasonings and olive oil. Fry up the meat until it has a little bit of caramelization.

Warm the beans in a non-stick skillet with the seasoning mix and a little olive oil.

Brush the corn tortillas with olive oil and griddle the tortillas until slightly golden. Add meat, toppings, and hot sauce and enjoy!
