Made this recipe multiple times. I broil the green peppers and tomato while I put 1 can stewed tomatoes, 1/2 yellow onion, 1 ancho chile pepper, pumpkin seeds in blender. the skins come right off the tomato when they are done under broiler and I am not to picky on taking the skins off the pepper. I add a little oregano and then blend it. when that is done I season the turkey with season all salt and a little cumin. sear the turkey and put in roasting dish. pour salsa over turkey making sure to cover it all then spoon pimento stuffed green olives over the turkey. drop in 2 bay leaves. cover and cooked turkey amount of time that the packaging it came in said, usually around 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Super moist and super yummy. served over rice with extra sauce or in the turkey curtido sandwich (recipe on this sight). We clean the sauce from our plate with french bread or warm tortillas. Once you get the hang of making the salsa this recipe is quick. You can also marinate the turkey overnight in the sauce. it lets the sauce soak into the turkey a little.

instead of buying the ancho chilis and pumpkin seeds and bay leaves seperatly go to your neighborhood hispanic food store and ask for "RELAJO" It has everything you need as far as seasonings goes all in one packet. Just add to blender with roasted tomatoes and Green Peppers for a yummy authentic Salvadorian Sauce. This Sauce can also be used for the Panes con Chumpe or turkey sandwiches. From my experience this sauce always taste better the next day.

This was a wonderful change from the usual roast turkey! Everyone at our luncheon loved it. I slow roasted it overnight in a 250 degree electric roaster and served the olives on the side instead of cooking them with the turkey and had additional sauce from the bottom of the pan in a gravey boat for those who want more. I wasn't sure about the green olives with this but they seemed to be what made it outstanding! This will be my standard roast turkey recipe from now on. No more boring roast turkey around here!

We tried this on a turkey breast to try out the recipe. I had to guess at the amounts, but it made a very delicious tasting turkey. We plan to make it again this Thursday for our "slightly untraditional" Thanksgiving. A bit of work, but very yummy. I used purchased roasted pumpkin seeds - in shells. This time when I shopped, there were ones w/ no shells, but barring opening up a pumpkin, I could not find raw seeds. Thanks for the recipe!
