Oh Thanksgiving 2013 was a success. The food. The family. The love. I couldn’t have asked for more.
I, for one, love leftover Thanksgiving dinner. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But even I need it a little different after about the sixth meal of the same thing. My usual go to is my Left-Over Taco Bake but this year I went a little different.
Taquitos. I saw a Food Network chef make her own version of Taquitos and I knew I wanted to make my own version too. These are so simple but tasty. With a little bit of cranberry sauce , they are the perfect meal. Enjoy!
Turkey & Dressing Taquitos
2 c turkey, diced
1 c cornbread dressing
1/2 c gravy
Salt and pepper, to taste
10 corn tortillas
In a medium frying pan, mix together turkey, dressing and gravy. Season with salt and pepper and mix to combine. Heat for 3-5 minutes until warmed.
Over medium-high heat, add about 1 cup oil to a sauce pan. Let heat up until oil is hot enough to fry tortillas. (I was lazy and didn’t use a thermometer so test by dropping a small piece of tortilla in oil and if it starts sizzling, it is ready.)
Heat up two tortillas over an open flame until they are just warmed. (note: you want to do these in batches of two so the tortillas don’t dry up and tear on you.)
Stuff tortillas with about a tablespoon of mixture. Roll tight and seal with toothpicks. Drop in the oil and cook for about 2-4 minutes on each side, until done. Continue with remaining taquitos.
