Prep Time: 15 minutes  |  Cook Time: 2 hours 15 minutes  |  Serves: 4


Add turkey drumettes to saucepan; pour in enough water to cover. Bring to boil; cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for about 2 hours or until meat is moist and tender. Remove turkey from cooking liquid and reserve 1 cup of liquid. When cool enough to work with, shred turkey with 2 forks, discarding skin.

Heat oil in large skillet set over medium heat; cook onion, garlic and cumin for 3 to 5 minutes or until onion is soft. Add reserved cooking liquid, broth, barbecue sauce, chipotle peppers and brown sugar; bring to boil. Add turkey to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer for 15 minutes or until sauce has thickened.

Serve turkey in tortillas. Top with lettuce, avocado, tomatoes and radishes. Dollop sour cream over top and garnish with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.

Tip: Serve with your favorite taco toppings, such as shredded cabbage, finely chopped pineapple or crumbled feta cheese.
