Turkey "Carnitas" - possible?

megmosa | Mar 14, 2010 08:24 PM

Has anybody eaten and/or made turkey carnitas? I realize carnitas are supposed to be pork, but I'm having a taco party and I already have a great pork recipe. I have a few people coming that don't eat pork, so I want an alternate meat taco option. I was thinking chicken, and started a chowhound thread where I have received some good ideas, but I'd like to investigate this turkey carnitas line of inquiry too.

I haven't even made real carnitas before. Somebody, please give me guidance. Are turkey legs fatty enough for it to work? Do you think they'd be good?
