Turkey Tacos

Exciting news on the Pie Hole home front!!! I finally bit the bullet and bought my dream camera on Black Friday. The best part (besides the price) was that I got to do it from the comfort of my own home, online, and skipped all that crazy 5:00am madness in the stores.

Let me just say, I'm in love with this camera. Its pretty fond of me too. We're seriously considering running away together. I don't have a clue how I survived this long without an SLR camera, but its a difference of night and day! You guys will be happy to know that from now on, only the best food porn for you! The disclaimer there is that I already have tons of recipes written and photos taken with my old camera, so you'll still have to endure those until I post them all. But in the very near future you'll be seeing only fancy camera photos!

I really do have a recipe to share today. I actually bumped this recipe to today because its the first one taken with my new toy! You're probably out of turkey by now, but I promised to post turkey leftover recipes this week so I'm still going to share a turkey recipe today and tomorrow. If you are all out of leftovers you can always save these for next year, or for the next time you make a turkey! I think people should really make turkey more often than Thanksgiving/Christmas. And these tacos are the perfect excuse. They were so delicious, I didn't even realize I was eating turkey! These taste more like a pulled pork taco. Line up your favorite toppings, whip up some margaritas, and treat your family to taco night!

Would you look at that beauty? Go ahead, click on it and enlarge it, you know you want to. I'll wait....please just don't take a bite out of your screen!

Turkey Tacos
  • 3-4C turkey, shredded (I used a combination of light and dark meat and just pulled it apart with my hands)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1.5C salsa
  • soft and/or hard taco shells
  • shredded cheese (I used monterey jack)
  • toppings: lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream, salsa, etc.
Heat skillet on medium high heat.
Add turkey, taco seasoning and salsa.
Stir until well incorporated and heated through.
Assemble tacos and serve!


  1. You should've told me not to take a bite out of my screen before you told me to enlarge the picture. Now I'm going to have to bill you for a new monitor.

  2. Nice pic! Congrats on the new camera! :)

  3. Yum, I love leftover recipes.

    The crazy 5am madness is half the fun. This year we got up and out at 5 but there wasn't anything that we were set out for. I just love the excitement of it all and saving money is always a thrill. I am glad to hear that you have your dream camera. The picture quality looks really good.

  4. I want I want! I want a nice camera! I am super jealous. Great click there. Lovely tacos!@

  5. actually doing tacos tonight just not turkey tacos :D
    Perhaps you could convince A to do turkey tacos this weekend while I'm off except we have very little turkey left at home ourselves.
