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...
