Turkey Cutlet Tacos with Manchamanteles

Added to Recipes on Wed 11/16/2011


Makes 8 tacos

4 turkey cutlets

Adobo seasoning

1 lime, juiced

Spray oil

8 corn tortillas


1/4 cup toasted pepitas

Cilantro, chopped



Sprinkle the cutlets with adobo in a shallow baking dish. Add the lime juice, cover lightly, and let marinate for about 30 minutes.


Pat the cutlets dry with clean towels, and heat a griddle pan with the spray oil, on high heat. Place the cutlets in the hot pan, cooking 3 minutes on one side, flip and cook 2 minutes on other side.


Set the turkey cutlets aside, and place the tortillas, wrapped in aluminum foil, in the oven to warm through. Slice the cutlets into 1-inch slices, lengthwise.


Place the warmed tortillas on a flat plate, or a cutting board, divide the turkey among the tortillas. Spoon 1 tbsp of the manchamanteles onto each tortilla, and sprinkle with the toasted pepitas, and cilantro.
