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 a long time, turkey tacos was my family’s Friday-After-Thanksgiving dinner plan.

  • 1lb leftover turkey meat from your Thanksgiving bird
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Seasonings: salt, pepper, paprika, chili powder
  • Corn tortillas, olive oil for griddle
  • Toppings: shredded cheddar, Pico de Gallo salsa (https://mangiavita.com/2023/08/11/pico-de-gallo/ ), shredded cabbage with lime juice and El Pato hot sauce (in the yellow can, if you can get it).

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.

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