It was so difficult for me to find a low-salt turkey during this pandemic year that when I finally found one at a local Whole Foods, I bought the biggest one they had, a great bird from Jaindl Farms.
At nearly 19 pounds, it left enough that we could give a carry-home plate to my father-in-law and still have plenty of leftovers for us. I personally could eat turkey daily but I know others, like my wife, tire of the same thing day after day. So I’m always thinking up ways to reuse the turkey in different dishes.
This year, I hit upon the idea of cutting some white meat into strips and seasoning it with Mrs Dash salt-free fajita seasoning to create turkey fajitas.
I fried some peppers and onions with the seasoning mix too and we used salt-free soft taco shells and low-salt Trader Joe’s taco sauce along with some low-fat cheese and tomatoes to create our fajitas.
The dish was a nice change-of-pace in our turkey week meals.
