directions

  • Prepare turkey for roasting. Rub with mixture of the olive oil, minced onion, basil, garlic salt, chili powder, cumin and fajita seasoning. Roast to 165 degrees.
  • Remove from oven and gather turkey drippings. Prepare enchilada sauce as directed, substituting turkey drippings for part of the water.
  • Stuff turkey with the spanish rice (I use Rice-a-Roni brand prepared with 2 chopped celery stalks and 1 diced onion. I only simmer it for the first 10 or so minutes to allow further cooking in the turkey).
  • Split mild green chiles and lay over breast and legs.
  • Lay frozen burritos (can also use fajitas or tamales) in roasting pan around turkey.
  • Pour enchilada sauce over the turkey and burritos. Cover with foil and roast approximately 45 minutes - 1 hour, until turkey internal temperature has reached at least 165 again.
