Jarred salsa and chiles give tender turkey its south-of-the-border flavors.
Updated Sep 18, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1 bone-in split turkey breast (about 5 lb), thawed if frozen
  • 1 cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chipotle chile in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can)
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place turkey in cooker. In small bowl, mix salsa, honey and chile; pour over turkey.
  • 2
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 to 7 hours.
  • 3
    Remove turkey from cooker. Remove skin from turkey breast. Cut turkey into 24 slices; place on platter and cover to keep warm.

Microwave uncovered on High 3 to 5 minutes, stirring every minute, until mixture boils and thickens. Serve with turkey.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For a little less spice, leave out the chipotle chile. To fire it up, use 2 or 3 chiles.
  • tip 2
    Spanish rice, a green salad tossed with slices of jicama in a ranch dressing, warm flour tortillas and corn on the cob create a menu with southwestern flair.
  • tip 3
    Chipotle chiles are dried jalapeño chiles with a wonderful sweet and smoky flavor. Look for them packed in spicy adobo sauce or dried.
