These are turkey tacos with the indulgence of fast food but the flavor and quality ingredients of homemade. You begin by making a tangy lime-flavored sour cream, then tossing together a chunky mix of cabbage, corn, carrot, and radishes. Next you create the ultimate ground-meat filling: spices and cornstarch cooked with flavorful, juicy dark-meat turkey. The kicker here is the double layer of corn tortillas, a kind of crispy-soft tortilla sandwich, filled with melted cheese. It’s quietly over the top.
