My Caribbean Carnival cruise last month inspired all sort of fresh & fun flavors! These tacos make the most of your Thanksgiving leftovers and are a perfectly balanced family meal, with a Mexican twist!
On my cruise in the Western Caribbean I enjoyed so many regionally inspired flavors. Fresh Mexican food was everywhere. Cooking it up at home brings back memories of the seas! In this dish, fall & winter flavors pair perfectly with corn tortillas in these Roasted Butternut Squash & Turkey Tacos.
Use Thanksgiving turkey leftovers, or cook up some boneless turkey breast which is what I did here.
For the butternut squash, I cut, seeded, peeled & cut it into bite sized pieces. Then it was tossed with olive oil, sea salt, pure maple syrup, cinnamon, salt & pepper.
Lay it out on a sheet pan in a single layer & roast at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
Your house will smell holiday festive when the squash roasts. This dish is perfect for entertaining & for family meals. My kids & hubs loved it!
I hope you enjoy my pairing of Thanksgiving meets Mexico flair! For more cruise inspired recipes please follow my Pinterest board.
