#2 Weeknight Turkey Tacos - 7x7 Christmas Turkey Redux


7 By 7 Christmas Turkey Redux #2 - Weeknight Turkey Tacos - takes us south of the border for an easy weeknight meal.

A weeknight meal, especially when it’s in the first few weeks of the the new year; calls for lots of help and a division of labor.  Put the spread of fixins’ on the table and let everyone make his or her own supper.

All you need to do is some prepping and chopping and that can be kept to a minimum by buying some good guacamole from the prepared food section of your favorite grocery store, along with shredded cheese and sour cream from the dairy case.

The only cooking required is sautéing the shredded turkey and warming the tortillas.

Sautee the shredded turkey with conserved turkey or pork fat that you may have on hand from holiday cooking.  I used a combination of pork and turkey fat.

Season with salt, pepper, and red chili flakes.

Wipe the sauté pan with a paper towel and then heat the tortillas - my tortilla choice is white corn.



Let the fiesta begin!

All the Fixins:

Chopped onion
Chopped chili peppers
Chopped hot red peppers
Seasoned and shredded turkey
Shredded cheese
Guacamole
White corn tortillas
Lime wedges
