Terrific Treat Tuesdays

 Slow Cooked Shredded Turkey Wraps

This recipe is for all those sports fans out there. Sports are very popular in most households so I'm giving something you can enjoy while you watch the game.  I am a sports lover myself and it just feels good to have a nice meal as your are enjoying the sport of choice. Football, Basketball and Baseball are the sports I love to watch :-).  Filling you up from this recipe and maybe leaving just enough room for dessert is a good way to start off.

It takes about seven hours to make but it is worth it because it serves up to 16 people!

All things you would need to begin...

lb turkey breast tenderloins
teaspoon seasoned salt
teaspoon pepper
medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
cup water
packages (1 oz each) Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix
packages (11 oz each) Old El Paso® flour tortillas for burritos (16 tortillas; 8 inch)
cups bite-size pieces lettuce
cups shredded Cheddar cheese (8 oz)

This a slow cook recipe so be sure to follow all directions(which is very simple).


Place turkey in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with seasoned salt and pepper. Add onion and water.                             

Cover and cook on low heat setting 6 to 7 hours or until juice of turkey is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.
Remove turkey from slow cooker. Shred turkey, using 2 forks. Measure liquid from slow cooker; add enough water to liquid to measure 2 cups. Mix seasoning mixes (dry) and liquid mixture in slow cooker. Stir in shredded turkey.
