Use Leftovers in BLT Turkey Tacos

Print Friendly

Use bacon and leftover turkey in tacos.

Use the leftover dark meat in these little treats, which are best served on small street-size corn tortillas.

BLT Turkey Tacos

8 ounces boneless leftover turkey meat, with skin, if desired
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 large gloves garlic, peeled
Kosher salt, to taste
1/4 cup mayonnaise
About 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
12 (4-inch) corn tortillas, warmed
2 strips bacon, cooked crisp and broken up, or more to taste
1 cup shredded lettuce
4 pickled jalapeños, diced, or to taste
1/2 cup pico de gallo

Preheat a heavy (preferably cast iron) sauté pan over medium heat. Toss the turkey with the oil. Reheat.

Crush the garlic with a pinch of salt to a smooth paste and stir it into the mayonnaise. Thin the mixture with the extra-virgin olive oil.

Thinly slice the turkey, trying to keep some of the skin on each slice, if using. Place a bit of turkey in a warm tortilla; top it with bacon, lettuce, jalapeños and pico de gallo.

Variation: Add crumbled blue cheese or sharp white cheddar.

Makes 12 small tacos.
