Turkey Soft Shell Taco

Photo courtesy of the Cooking Corner.
    One of my favorite ways to use up leftovers is to throw what's handy into a soft taco shell. This year I got creative and added a little Mexican flavor to chunked up turkey and stuffed it in a soft shell with cheese, sour cream and a few other tidbits. 
    This turned out to be such an easy dinner. The condiments and spices added a new flavor twist to leftover bird, covered in the creaminess of melted cheese and sour cream. If we can have fish tacos why not turkey? This is a great idea to keep in mind for later.

Turkey Soft Shell Taco
1 cup cooked turkey, shredded
6 tsp. sour cream
3/4 cup Colby-Jack cheese, shredded
1/4 cup black olives, sliced
1/8 cup onions, diced
3 8-inch soft taco shells

1/2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. chili powder

In small bowl, sprinkle spices on turkey. Heat for 30 seconds in microwave just to warm.

Wrap taco shells in paper towels and microwave to soften, about 20 seconds each side.

Place soft shell on a plate and layer turkey, onions and olives. Spread sour cream on top and sprinkle with cheese. Fold shell edges toward middle and roll. Warm in microwave an additional 30-45 seconds. Makes 3 tacos.
