How to Make It

  1. In a small bowl, combine ground chilies, orange juice concentrate, orange peel, and cumin.

  2. When turkey has about 20 more minutes to cook (the breast temperature at the bone will be about 150° for birds up to 18 lb., about 155° for birds over 18 lb.), coat generously with the chili-orange glaze.

  3. Continue to cook until the meat thermometer registers 160°. If glaze starts to get quite dark, drape dark areas with foil.

  4. Nutritional analysis per tablespoon.
