  • Summary

    Turkey is native to Mexico; it was a staple in the Mayan diet. I first sampled pavo en sac kol at Los Almendros in Mérida. This recipe was inspired by Rick Bayless.

    Ingredients

    • 3 tablespoons achiote paste, divided
    • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
    • 1 tablespoon water
    • 1 4 1/2-to 5-pound whole turkey breast
    • 1/4 cup (scant) loosely packed stemmed dried chiles de árbol or chiles japones (about 12 to 16 chiles)
    • 3 cups low-salt chicken broth, divided
    • 3 garlic cloves, peeled
    • 1 1/2 pounds tomatoes
    • 1 medium onion, quartered through core end
    • 8 mint leaves, coarsely chopped, plus sprigs for garnish
    • 3 tablespoons masa (corn tortilla mix)
    • Coarse kosher salt
