Ingredients

  • 12 dried Cascabel chiles (about 2 ounces) or 5 ancho chiles (dried poblanos)
  • Juice of 2 oranges
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 bone-in turkey breast (4 to 6 pounds)
  • 24 corn tortillas (6 inches each), warmed, for serving

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Toast chiles in a dry skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until slightly softened and pliable, about 5 minutes. Remove seeds and ribs. Place chiles in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Let stand 10 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Using a slotted spoon, transfer chiles to a blender. Add orange and lime juices, garlic, onion, and salt; blend until smooth. Transfer 3/4 cup sauce to small bowl and refrigerate.

  3. Step 3

    Rub turkey with remaining sauce and place in a baking dish. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator at least 2 hours (up to 12 hours).

  4. Step 4

    Remove turkey from refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  5. Step 5

    Roast in oven for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 20 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Transfer turkey to a cutting board; let stand about 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with warm tortillas and reserved sauce.
