Leftover Turkey Chipotle Potato Hash Tacos

Leftover Turkey Chipotle Potato Hash Tacos

Lightened-up, spiced-up, and zippy turkey tacos for your day after thanksgiving leftover turkey feasting!

This year, forget turkey sandwich and start the tradition of leftover turkey tacos! With spice of chipotle, fresh toppings, pickle onion, dollop of sour cream and splash of lime juice..... these tacos are perfect after-holiday meal!

Oh, and you know the best part? Turkey chipotle Potato Hash tacos come together in just 20 minutes, start to finish! With cooked roasted leftover turkey already in refrigerator, all you have to do is : boil some potatoes and prepare toppings! In-fact, if you have leftover potatoes from holiday feast, you can even use those instead of boiling a fresh batch.

I'm sure agree, even though Turkey feast is meant to be devoured, holiday feasts can get overwhelming heavy. So, I prefer to lighten-up and spice-up the leftovers with fresh toppings and zesty flavors to balance the richness.

A little heat of chipotle goes a long way. I paired the chipotle with some tomatoes paste for delicious flavor contrast. And don't forget to add fresh toppings like cucumber, quick marinated red onions, and sour cream. These just make tacos sing in every bite!

Turkey is one of my favorite holiday leftover that I use a lot in my recipes. No, no, I don't roast a whole turkey. But, I happen to cook for turkey and thanksgiving food lover :) In-fact, at-least 2 weeks before thanksgiving, my refrigerator have some cooked and sliced turkey. Then? Then what? It goes in everything, from soup, sandwiches, to pasta and pot-pies! Out of all those leftover feasts, after salad, tacos are my favorite to serve leftovers in a light and zesty meal!

Really, you can serve these tacos for breakfast or for dinner.

When freezing leftover turkey for later use. Take sometime and slice the turkey into cubes and portion it in individual/family-size seal-able plastic bags. For taco night, of taco breakfast, just takeout a portion and let it thaw while you boil potatoes and prepare fresh toppings. Serve it family-style or pre-assembled and enjoy with glass of your favorite drink!
