Ingredients

Turkey Taquitos

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Special equipment: toothpicks

Place the cranberry sauce, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, jalapeno pepper, onion, red pepper, green pepper, tomatoes, and salt, and pepper, to taste in a food processor and pulse until blended, but still chunky. Serve with Turkey Taquitos.

Turkey Taquitos

Sweat the onion, garlic, and jalapeno in a saute pan with 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil. Remove from the heat and add to a large bowl. To the bowl, add the shredded turkey, cheese, tomatoes and season with salt, and pepper, to taste. Mix the ingredients thoroughly.

Warm the tortillas in the microwave for 10 seconds so they are pliable.

Fill the tortillas with a tablespoon of filling and roll into a thin taquito, securing with a toothpick. Keep the taquitos covered with a damp towel before cooking otherwise the corn tortillas will dry out and crack. Heat 2 cups oil in a straight-sided pan to 350 degrees F. Place the taquitos in the hot oil in batches and shallow fry until crisp, rolling to cook all sides, about 3 minutes.

Drain the taquitos on paper towels and salt. Remove the toothpicks before serving.
