Turkey Tacos


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.  

Serves 4.
