Pulled Turkey in Pipian

This might go down as the easiest recipe of all time.

I know we often think dry and bland when it comes to turkey but this recipe breaks the mold. Thanks to the slow cooking, the turkey comes out moist and rich and the Pipian sauce imparts a deep, earthy flavor.

This pulled turkey works great on tacos, your kids sandwiches, or to top a salad.

Serves 8



1 Extra Large Whole Turkey Breast (approx 1 kilo or 2.2lbs in size) 

1 Box of Dona Chonita Pipian Sauce* (available in US at Mexican Grocers)



1. Stab your turkey breast repeatedly on all sides.

2. Deposit in slow-cooker and top with the box of Pipian Sauce. There's no need to add additional seasonings.

3. Slow-cook on low for about 8 hours (or overnight) with the lid just barely propped. Just check back once in a while to make sure it hasn't dried out.

4. It's ready when the breast falls apart with a polk of a wooden spoon, just like pulled pork.

*If you can't find pipian sauce at your local grocery store, any rich, flavored sauce with natural ingredients will do the trick.
