Turkey Tacos - frugal meal

Last week we were blessed with a turkey. You might be thinking, "turkey? Thanksgiving is over" , well that's true BUT if you recall I was moving and did not get the joy of cooking Thanksgiving OR Christmas! THIS has been an issue for me. Seriously, I felt all out of whack.

Now I fixed the issue. I roasted my turkey!! Prepared green beans, rolls (yes I splurged and had one), stuffing, rice (brown), and cranberry sauce. I did forgo the normal sweet potato casserole as I did fix one of those on Thanksgiving and carried to my moms house. Plus I didn't need all that sugar. We had plenty of food.

Now, what to do with a turkey after just 2 people have eaten? You come up with new ideas. I love Mexican food, you guys know that and I wanted a taco. SO...why not use the turkey?

It turned out great! I will definitely do it again, maybe this week :)

Simple, frugal, healthy, low fat, low calorie, used up leftovers and best of all it tasted T-riffic! (yes that is a word)

 I heat up my tortillas in a dry pan and toast them. My husband likes his a little crispy with a charred flavor, me not so much. But if it keeps him happy...

 Turkey Tacos
1 cup turkey breast chopped
3 salad sweet peppers (red, orange, yellow) julienned
2 green onions, diced
8 grape tomatoes, halved
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 TBSP taco seasoning (homemade)
2 TBSP turkey broth
5 flour tortillas

1 organic avocado
1 tsp cilantro
1 lime, juiced
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet add broth, taco seasoning, paprika, and vegetables. Saute and add turkey. Heat through.
While this is going on, mash your avocado, cilantro, lime juice, onion and garlic powder, add sea salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste. Set aside.

Toast your tortillas.

Spread the avocado mixture on the tortillas and top with turkey/veg mix.
Fold and eat!
