Tomatillo Turkey Tacos

  • 8 small white corn tortillas
  • 1 pound fresh tomatillos
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 1 jalapeno chile, stemmed
  • ¼ bunch fresh cilantro, stemmed
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • frshly ground black pepper
  • pinch of granulated sugar
  • 2 cups chopped boneless, skinless roasted turkey
  • 4 Tbsp. light sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Wrap the tortillas tightly in foil and place in the oven to heat through for about 10 minutes.  Or, layer with damp paper towels and heat in the microwave on medium for 20 seconds, check and then repeat.  Wrap to keep warm.  Meanwhile, remove the papery husk from the tomatillos, then rinse and cut in half.  Combine the tomatillos, onion, jalapeno, cilantro, salt, pepper and sugar in a food processor or blender.  Process until combined but still slightly chunky.  Chop the turkey into small pieces.  Put into either a microwave-safe container or a saucepan with the salsa.  Heat through, about 5 minutes, stirring once or twice.  Everyone can build his or her own tacos with the turkey tomatillo salsa and sour cream.  Finely chopped onions and cilantro can be used as garnishes.
