Sunset NOVEMBER 1998

  • Yield: Makes enough for a 10- to 24-pound turkey, oven roasted or barbecued


  • 3 tablespoons ground dried New Mexico or California chilies (or 3 tablespoons chili powder)
  • 1 can (12 oz.; 1 1/2 cups) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin


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.
