Chef's Notes

Use dark and white meat for the turkey.


  1. I've made it twice. It takes 10 minutes to throw everything into the crockpot and have a nice meal by dinner. I use fresh turkey breast cut into strips. I also make my own taco seasoning and add fresh garlic and onions. I added some black beans to give it a veggie option too. Great - Read more ...
  2. One of my go to recipes I make this often always delicious!
  3. I didnt have leftover turkey so I just used a pound of extra lean ground turkey instead. And I added onion to the crock pot. Otherwise all the same. And it was DELISH! My husband and I cant wait to have it again!
  4. Easily a 5 star recipe. A perfect way to use up leftover turkey. This review is short because I'm going back for more. Filed this under my TNT recipe folder.
