I made my slow cooker turkey breast and had lots of leftovers. Normally with the leftovers I make turkey pot pie soup or turkey sweet potato fritatta 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!

  1. This is my absolute favorite way to eat leftover turkey. I used an 8 inch low calorie tortilla instead. Perfection! I literally bought another turkey to cook next month just to make these. You can eat all the ingredients hot or cold! Delicious!

  2. What size corn tortillas?

  3. Just to confirm on this one are the Brussels Raw and the turkey cod ?
