What to do with all the leftover thanksgiving turkey you're about to have. I normally eat it standing in front of the open fridge, dipping it in cold gravy hours after dinner when eveyone has gone home and I'm too tipsy/tired/happy to get a plate. Does this sound familiar to anyone? (Am I alone here?)
This year I'm going to make these turkey tacos. Pretty easy and something different. Serve with your favorite taco fillings or use for quesadillas or enchiladas.
1 lb leftover cooked turkey, shredded (i used white + dark meat)
juice of 1 lime
juice of 1 small orange
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon agave
4 sprigs cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 teaspoons chipotle powder
1/2 teaspoon chile powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
s + p
high heat oil, like canola, grape seed...
Toss all ingredients, excluding oil, together in a bowl. In a large skillet, heat a splash of oil over high heat. Add seasoned turkey and cook, stirring occasionally until hot, about 5 minutes.
