Taco Ingredients

Mashed Potatoes
Mashed Sweet Potatoes or Squash
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Sliced Avocado
Corn Tortillas

Cranberry Salsa

12 oz. Cranberries
½ Cup Chopped Cilantro
½ Cup Diced Green Onion
1 Diced Jalapeno Pepper
1 Lime Juiced
¼ Cup Sugar

Start by preparing the cranberry salsa. Either finely dice the ingredients and stir together, or mix them in a food processor. Warm the leftover turkey and potatoes in an oven or microwave. Dice the turkey into small cubes. Grill the corn tortillas individually until they puff and turn slightly brown in spots. Note: Tortillas are best grilled over the open flame on a gas stove, but can also be warmed in a skillet. Build the tacos to your desired taste using cheese, potatoes, turkey, avocado and cranberry salsa. Sprinkle cilantro on top and enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Trek Travel.
