Healthy turkey tacos. Leftover turkey gets an instant upgrade with this easy idea. Load warm tortillas with shredded turkey and vibrant avocado salsa for a delicious lunch or dinner after the turkey day feast. Sour cream not optional!
How good is a beautifully roast turkey adorning your holiday entertaining table! While I love whole roast turkey, the delicious celebration meal always bring in the usual “leftover” dilemma. But don’t worry, I’ve the perfect solution for you.
Let’s make these healthy turkey tacos
Whether you’re looking for delicious ways to use up all the leftovers from your holiday dinner or just want to whip up an easy weeknight recipe, these tacos are the way to go. I really love the fresh vibrant colors in these tacos that invite you to sit down and enjoy every bite. Not to mention the amazing flavors that make them taste incredible.
For the core ingredient of these turkey tacos, I used leftovers from tandoori turkey. Tandoori chicken also pairs really well with the rest of the flavors in this recipe. All you need to do is shred the turkey meat and discard the bones.
Store bought tortillas form the base of these tacos. Choose your favorite flour or corn tortillas, heat them up over the stovetop or microwave just before you add in the fillings.
Avocado salsa, with its vibrant pop of colors, brings in a lot of visual interest to the tacos. The cheery vegetables like avocados, tomatoes and herbs add that refreshing touch that I really love.
Finally, a dollop of sour cream to complete the picture.
