Mexican Pulled Turkey Wraps

I roasted a 13 pound turkey and we had LOTS of leftovers, so I had to get creative. Brian and I don't like breast meat, so I usually "re-cook" it. Since we are on our "For the Love of Paleo" journey for February, I'm not using any pre-made sauces or fillers. I really wish I took a picture, this meal was SO good, we will be making it again soon! For those of you who eat corn, this would make a super yummy enchilada filling! 

Mexican Pulled Turkey Wraps
1 large turkey breast (mine was previously cooked)
12oz jar of TJ's Verde Tomatillo Salsa
4oz can of TJ's Hatch Green Chillies
1 cup - turkey broth 

1 head of romaine or bib lettuce
Diced bell pepper
Diced tomatoes
Chopped cilantro

Place turkey, salsa, green chillies, and broth in a crock pot. Cook on low for 6 hours. After 2 hours I used two forks to shred tuhe turkey so it could really absorb the sauce. Lower crock pot to warm until ready to serve. 

To serve: place lettuce on a plate, add Mexican Pulled Turkey with a slotted spoon, and top with guacamole, bell pepper, tomatoes and cilantro. Roll it up and enjoy. 

I was drooling for a second serving. I hope you all enjoy it as well.  Pictures will be posted next time we make these!

***This could be made with chicken, but you would need to use more meat to absorb the yummy sauce***

Cheers from My Kitchen to Yours!
