Baked Turkey Tacos

I just love the new baked tacos shells that we find at the super market, they have come a long way from the taco shell that we had to fry then hang upside down on a rack. Another plus to these tacos, you can make a few or enough for a crowd. Just load them on a baking sheet pour in the filling and they are ready to bake. I am using left over Turkey today to make this awesome recipe. No matter how well we plan there is always a little left over turkey or chicken and what better way to make a left over come to life than a great Tex Mex Taco.
