With Thanksgiving just behind us, my guess is that you have some leftover turkey in the fridge. If you're looking for a healthy way to use your Thanksgiving leftovers, I recommend giving these healthy tacos a try.
While this recipe originally used ground turkey, in this case you'll be using your leftover turkey meat. Just shred the meat and then follow the cooking instructions to create a delicious post-Thanksgiving meal that won't weigh you down.

If cheese isn't your thing, you can absolutely substitute ½ an avocado instead. Avocado is a great source of healthy fats, and adds a delicious creaminess to these tacos.
