I know the start to finish time seems daunting, but it’s not hard at all! It was a very simple hour. I had spatula in hand doing battle with the turkey meat in the skillet & was using my second hand to do battle with my busy body 10 month old who loves to eat dog food. If you like Mexican food, go for this recipe. They were amazing! We finished off all of them in much less time than it took me to make them & we were both disappointed that there weren’t leftovers.
