The flavor of the turkey didn't go well with the flavor of the sauce, in my opinion. I chose to blend the sauce before putting it on the turkey. It needs less cumin and less lime - those were very overpowering flavors. Although my husband seemed to like it, I don't think I will make this again.

The green chilies and pumpkin seeds were a great addition to the turkey!

Love this! Spicy, savory and flavorful. The sauce would be fantastic on Thanksgiving turkey leftovers too.

Nice combination of textures and flavors. The cumin and lime really stand out. The earthy colors of this dish are nice for Fall, and the brown rice is a nice touch.
