Taco Tuesday - My new favorite Tacos

You are not going to believe this but yesterday for lunch I decided to make some left over lunch.  It all started with wanting some tacos but all we had was some left over from the Thanksgiving dinner.  I decided to cut up some of the light and dark meat of the turkey, add one clove of garlic which I diced, some salt and pepper.  This process was called Star Spangled turkey which was shown by my niece last year.  The chopped turkey mixture was pan fried until crispy.  I looked for some vegetables in the fridge and found a bulb of fennel which I diced and sauted with a dash of salt and pepper.  What was I thinking, I cannot have tacos without some sauce, so I took the left over cranberry/pomegranate sauce and added a tiny bit of hot sauce to make it a touch spicy since it was a bit too sweet.  I pan fried the corn tortilla, arrange the SS Turkey, added some of the fennel and topped it with the sauce.  There it was, my new triple T meal - Thanksgiving Turkey Tacos.  I really did not know what to expect but after the first bite, there were fireworks of flavor in my mouth.  The combination of crispy turkey, the flavor of the sauted fennel and of course the spicy & sweet sauce was just so awesome, I loved this new combinationMy only disappointment is that I can only make this during the holidays (Thanksgiving or Christmas or maybe Easter).  It's still worth waiting for now that this is my new favorite left over Turkey.  Of course I had to make it for dinner again because I wanted to enjoy every bit of it.
