Soft turkey tacos with smoky tomatillo salsa
- Total Time
Grilling the tomatillos for the sauce gives it a charred smoky flavor that’s addictively delicious. Make a double batch and serve it over grilled or baked fish or shrimp for another meal.

Add cilantro, lime juice, honey, chipotle, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; pulse until almost smooth. Transfer salsa to small bowl; set aside.
