Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high. Add onion and garlic; season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Add turkey and cook, stirring, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in salsa and heat through, about 1 minute more.

  • Place a tortilla directly on a gas flame or in a heavy skillet over high heat. When edges begin to char, about 15 seconds, turn; cook second side until bubbles form all over surface, about 15 seconds more. Wrap in a clean kitchen towel. Repeat with remaining tortillas. Layer each tortilla with mashed sweet potatoes, then turkey mixture. Top with salsa, sour cream, cheese, and eggs. Serve, with lime wedges.

Cook's Notes

If you don't have leftover sweet potatoes (or they are mixed with marshmallows), bake a sweet potato until tender in a 400-degree oven. Let cool briefly, then remove from skin. Mash flesh with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
