20 minutes to prepare and 120 minutes to cook

Serves 14


"Add some sweet heat to your traditional roast turkey with a chipotle and cranberry glaze that's sure to be a new family favorite."


1 cup water
3/4 cup sugar
1 (12 ounce) bag fresh cranberries
4 tablespoons TABASCO® brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce, divided
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (12 pound) turkey, rinsed and trussed


1*For cranberry glaze, combine water and sugar in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add cranberries and return to a boil, stirring occasionally for about 6 minutes or until berries pop and soften.
2*Transfer cranberries to a fine sieve set over a bowl and press contents through sieve. Discard solids and stir in 2 tablespoons of the TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce. Glaze can be refrigerated up to two days before using.
3*To prepare turkey, combine butter, salt, pepper, and remaining 2 tablespoons TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce in a small bowl and mix well. Place turkey in a large roasting pan and brush with butter mixture. Bake in a 325 degrees F oven for approximately 11 minutes per pound for an unstuffed bird, or until an internal temperature of 180 degrees F is reached.
4*One hour and 20 minutes before the turkey is done, begin brushing it with cranberry glaze. Brush turkey liberally every 20 minutes, 3 separate times, and then roast turkey without basting for the last 40 minutes. Let rest at least 30 minutes before carving.
