Mojo Turkey Tacos

This is a great recipe to use up leftover turkey. When it's not Thanksgiving, I just use ground turkey breast instead. We never have leftovers it's so good! The kids eat the ingredients separately rather than as a taco, but they still eat it up.

1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tbsp orange juice
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp hot chili powder
1/8 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 tbsp sour cream
2 cups (about 12 oz) cooked, coarsely chopped turkey breast (or substitute 1 lb ground turkey breast)
8 (6-in) flour tortillas
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup salsa
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
1/2 cup Mexican-blend cheese
1/2 cup diced avocado

1. Using a whisk, mix first 7 ingredients (through sour cream) in a small bowl. Toss with the cooked turkey. Set aside.

2. Heat the tortillas according to package directions.

3. Spoon 1/4 cup of turkey mixture onto each tortilla. Then top each tortilla with 2 tbsp black beans, 1 tbsp salsa, 2 tbsp lettuce, 1 tbsp cheese, and 1 tbsp avocado. (This is how the recipe was written. I just put some of everything onto a tortilla, just to my tasting!)

4. Fold the tortilla around taco mixture and serve.

Recipe was taken from Health magazine.
