Turkey Leg Tacos

Description

Ingredients:

  1. 48 oz box of chicken broth (big box or two smaller ones)
  2. A set of cooked, pulled turkey legs and thighs
  3. 1 can of hatch green chiles (4.5 oz)
  4. 1 sliced yellow or vidalia onion
  5. A packet of fajita seasoning
  6. A pack of soft flour tortillas
  7. 3 Tbsps of butter
  8. Tsp of salt
  9. Tsp of pepper

 

Cooking Instructions: 

  1. For crockpot with locking lid: Poke holes with a fork or knife in the legs and thighs (separated at the joint) of one gobbler. Place legs and thighs in a crockpot and put enough chicken broth in the crockpot to submerge them. Add a can of hatch green chiles, 1 sliced onion, and the packet of fajita seasoning to cook down with them. Stir the loose ingredients. Cook on low for 8-9 hours.
  2.  Once finished, take them out of broth and set on a cutting board to cool. Turn your crockpot to “warm” or the lowest setting. Pull the meat apart and remove all bones.  Place meat back in crockpot as you pull it.
  3. Heat up your frying pan (cast iron comals are perfect for this) to medium- low heat. Once heated, put your tortilla in the pan and spread a little butter (~¼-½ tbsp) on top. Depending on your tortilla size, you’ll need to let it heat for 30 seconds- 1 min on each side. You can keep them warm by placing them in a folder made of aluminum foil. 
  4. Bring another frying pan up to medium-high heat. 
  5. Once the pan is hot, scoop out some turkey leg meat and associated goods, place in the frying pan. Add a tbsp butter and salt and pepper or any favorite seasoning immediately. We often use Tony Chachere’s cajun seasoning instead of salt and pepper for a bolder flavor. 
  6. Stir around ingredients in pan until it’s seared. This usually takes a minute or so. Do not leave it on too long or it will dry out. 
  7. Make up your tacos with your favorite ingredients. I usually add a little salsa, avocado slices, sour cream, and queso fresco cheese sprinkled on top.
  8. Store leftover meat in broth (in fridge) because it will only make the flavor better for leftovers.
