Total Time 4 Hours 20 Minutes
Serving Size 12 Servings

2 – tablespoons chili powder

1 – tablespoon garlic powder

1 – tablespoon ground cumin

1 – tablespoon dried oregano leaves

¾ – teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)

1 – (10 to 12-pound) JENNIE-O® Premium Basted Young Turkey, thawed, giblets and neck removed

1) In bowl, combine chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, oregano and red pepper. Stir in water to make a paste. Rub spice mixture on turkey.

2) Heat oven to 325°F.

3) Remove neck and giblets. These may be used to prepare gravy or stuffing. The plastic leg clamp may be left on during cooking.

4) Place turkey on rack in shallow pan, breast side up, and loosely cover with foil. Roast at 325°F. for 4 hours.
