The flavor is tart and sweet, the texture: chopped. This surprising mouthburst of tastiness is perfect for dipping the turkcrescents in.

Sliced, this is what your turkcrescent might boast on the inside. Moms and I have some sweet potato and drained southern greens in ours, in addition to the turkey, stuffing and maybe mashed potatoes, if you can fit them.

Turkcrescents

My mother is the Queen Bee of stretching leftovers, making a budgeted meal into at least a few others and with the family none-the-wiser. She taught me well and we still collaborate new remixes of traditional meals. We're the type of women who have mini tupperwares all up in the fridge with just a taste of this or that, to throw in something else. This is how turkcrescents were born.


Sabroso, thanksgiving leftovers, mexican style

Tacos de las gracias

I had to have been latina in my first life. I've been fluent in Spanish for more than a decade, partly thanks to a novela-style romance with my first love, who spoke little English, but shared a zest for cooking, like I do. Having said that, I look for opportunities to fuse American classics with Hispanic food presentations, and vice versa. Turkey tacos are nothing new, but with a few new items at Trader Joes, you can kick up the tacos in a way that would make the turkey dance bachata, all the way to the kitchen.

Tacos de las gracias

  • Trader Joes Abuelita's corn/flour tortillas
  • leftover turkey
  • shredded cheddar
  • Trader Joes Cruciferous Crunch
  • Trader Joes NEW jalapeno cranberry sauce
  • crema mexicana

Have it your way, on Turkey Day

  1. Build your taco to your taste insofar as quantities, and order of layers.

Turkey tacos, with a crunch

Trader Joes Cruciferous Crunch has kale, brussels sprouts, broccoli slaw green & red cabbage. It's a melange of crunchy neutral tasting greens for those that don't want their veggies with a strong aftertaste. Cruciferous Crunch can back up the verdant color with solid vitamins and enough fiber to keep the festivities 'flowing smoothly'!

As an aside, the package recommends getting your favorite dressing to a gentle simmer, and pour it over the blend to very slightly wilt the vegetables. I've done this with Trader Joes Goddess dressing which is a creamy mustard seed base, and it is phenomenal, healthy yet filling!
