Turkey TacosThese are traditional tacos made with leftover turkey meat.  This is an excellent recipe for the dark meat from the turkey.


1/2 cup diced onions
2 cups cooked, shredded turkey meat
1/2 cup salsa Verde
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

corn tortillas (if you prefer, flour tortillas can be substituted)

shredded cheddar cheese
diced tomatoes
shredded lettuce
sour cream


  1. Sauté the onions in a little oil in a large skillet.  Add the meat, salsa Verde, cumin, garlic powder, salt and chili powder.  Mix and cook until hot.  Set aside.
  2. Cook the corn tortillas, one at a time, in a hot skillet with oil.  Turn to cook both sides.  As they finish cooking, lay them on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
  3. Fold the tortillas and add a couple tablespoons of the turkey meat filling.  Top with grated cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and sour cream as desired.

Makes about 12 tacos.
