Easy and Delicious Turkey Recipe- Latino Style!

Even though I grew up in the United States, my mother did not cook turkey on Thanksgiving Day or Christmas. She didn’t know how to make turkey, because this is an American tradition. Instead, we used to go to a restaurant and eat lobster or shrimp! (Hey, I’m not complaining).

However, when I got married, a very close U.S American friend invited us over for Thanksgiving year after year and our family would feast on the traditional Turkey, Baked Ham and side dishes- Broccoli Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, Sweet Potato Casserole and Cranberry Sauce… SOOO good!

Over the years, I have learned to prepare the TRADITIONAL Turkey dinner for the holidays, but I’ve added my version of Latino seasoning, because the majority of traditional seasonings didn’t have much flavor.

This “secret” recipe (from the flavors of my cookbook, Not Just Tacos) is easy and delicious and keeps the turkey juicy, so the flavors mix in your mouth and everyone is left craving more! You will love the “tangy” flavor of the meat. Enjoy it with the traditional side dishes or accompany it with rice and beans for full on Latino Thanksgiving. For best flavor, marinade a few days before cooking.

Ingredients:

20-22 lbg turkey

1 1/2 cup lime juice

8 garlic cloves, minced

4 tablespoons garlic powder

2 tablespoons onion powder

2 tablespoons cumin powder

5 tablespoons salt

1 1/2 tablespoon crushed  black pepper

Directions:

Wash turkey and place on a broiler pan. Place inside a turkey bag or cover with foil (I prefer turkey bag).

Mix lime juice, fresh garlic, salt, black pepper and garlic, onion and cumin powders. Make a paste. Meanwhile, using a knife, make wholes on the top and bottom of the turkey.

Rub turkey on top, bottom and inside cavity with paste. Seal bag, making three small wholes on top of the bag.

Cook turkey at 350-375 degrees for 3-4 hours or until the meat is cooked all the way through. Once the meat is cooked, use the juice from the turkey to “soak” the meat for additional flavor.

Enjoy this delicious recipe for a seasoned turkey, Latino style!
