Turkey Cutlet Tacos with Manchamanteles


Makes 8 tacos


  • 4 turkey cutlets
  • adobo seasoning
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • manchamanteles
  • 1/4 cup toasted pepitas
  • cilantro, chopped
  • spray oil


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.
