I made my slow cooker turkey breast and had lots of leftovers. Normally I make soup, turkey sweet potato fritatta, or these Santa Fe turkey lettuce wraps with my leftovers but I thought I would try something different. Since we love all kinds of tacos I thought it would be fun to make a leftover Thanksgiving taco and used leftover cranberry sauce on top, it turned out great and came together in less than 15 minutes. Tomorrow I’ll be posting a leftover Turkey Harvest Cobb Salad, stay tuned!
