What are you going to do with that left over turkey?
Well each year I give you some ideas, and this year.. are you ready? It’s time for TURKEY TACOS!!!!
You heard me. Turkey. Tacos. and its not just for Taco Tuesday!

What you need:
left over turkey shredded
left over stuffing
2 limes
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp of chili powder
1/4 bunch of cilantro finely chopped
1/2 jalapeño deseeded and diced
1tablespoon of olive oil
Salt and Pepper to taste
Left over cranberry sauce
Sour Cream

What to do:
In a sauté pan put the olive oil and allow to heat up on medium heat. Add the diced jalapeño and cilantro and sauté until jalapeño is tender. Add the turkey and seasonings including salt and pepper and sauté for 3-5 minutes or until warmed up and happy.

While the turkey is doing its thing, Take your cranberry sauce and add the juice from one lime, blend so its smooth in a food processor or blender. Fold into your sour cream.  Remove the turkey mixture and add a flat thin layer of stuffing into the pan allowing the stuffing to crisp for 2-3 minutes, flip the stuffing over and allow the other side to crisp up then remove from heat and chop (or break) up.

In a soft warmed tortilla shell ad the Turkey mixture, squeeze lime on the taco and add your crunchy stuffing to the top with some of your cranberry sour cream!

You can also add Avocado or tomato if you wish!  Delicious Thanksgiving Leftovers! YUM!
