Turkey Gordita's

Turkey Gordita's

What’s for dinner mom??? That was tonight’s burning question. So what better way to disguise the superfluous Christmas turkey than with Mexican spices and ranch dressing!

This was my last minute dinner idea, it was quick, easy and everyone said it tasted really good.

Turkey Gordita’s (via Taco Bell)


  • 1 pound “surplus” Christmas turkey
  • 1 Taco Bell Gordita Kit
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Sliced Olives
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Anything else you need to finish off!


Shred the turkey and place in 10 inch frying pan. Mix the spice pack with the water (as directed) and pour it over the turkey, cook until the meat and sauce is hot. At the same time, toss the gordita shells in a 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes, or until soft and warm. When everything is heated through, top the shells with meat, cheese, tomatoes and olives, finish with the included ranch dressing. Serve and smile! You have just finished off more turkey leftover and no one even knew!
