Spicy Turkey Soft Tacos

Jim Bathie; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell

Don't be intimidated by the thought of making your own mole sauce. It's easy to prepare and comes together in a flash. Be careful, though: the turkey will spatter from time to time in the pan during the browning process.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 tacos and 1 lime wedge)

Ingredients

  • Mole:
  • 1 (7-ounce) can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 medium onion, peeled and quartered
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/3 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Remaining ingredients:
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups shredded cooked turkey
  • 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 1/2 cup diced peeled avocado
  • 1/2 cup bottled salsa
  • 4 lime wedges

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. To prepare the mole, drain chipotles in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/2 teaspoon adobo sauce. Remove 1 chile; chop to measure 1 1/2 teaspoons. Reserve remaining adobo sauce and chiles for another use.
  3. Place the onion and garlic in a small, shallow baking dish; bake at 400° for 15 minutes.
  4. While onion and garlic roast, combine reserved adobo sauce, chile, broth, and next 8 ingredients (broth through black pepper) in a blender; add onion and garlic. Process until smooth.
  5. To prepare the remaining ingredients, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey; sauté 12 minutes or until browned. Add mole; cook 4 minutes or until liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.
  6. Heat tortillas according to package directions. Spoon 1/4 cup turkey mixture onto each tortilla, and roll up. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons avocado and 2 tablespoons salsa. Serve with lime wedges.
