DIRECTIONS

  1. Adjust oven rack to lowest position. Preheat oven to 325°. Place roasting rack in large, deep roasting pan. In small bowl, whisk 1 tablespoon chili powder, salt, black pepper, garlic powder and 1 teaspoon cumin.
  2. Remove giblets from turkey cavity; discard liver. Place turkey, breast side up, on rack in pan; pat turkey dry with paper towel. Sprinkle inside cavity and outside of turkey with chili powder mixture; place celery and onion quarters inside cavity. If not already secured, tie legs together with kitchen string; tuck wing tips under turkey to hold in place. Place giblets around turkey in pan; add broth. Roast turkey 1-1/2 hours or until turkey starts to brown.
  3. Baste turkey with butter; roast 30 minutes. Baste turkey; tent with foil. Roast turkey 1 hour longer or until juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 160° in thickest part of thigh, making sure thermometer doesn’t touch bone, basting every 20 minutes. Transfer turkey to platter; loosely cover with foil. (Internal temperature will rise about 10° upon standing.)
  4. Remove rack from pan; with spoon, skim excess fat from drippings and strain through fine-mesh strainer into small bowl. Heat medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add oil and chopped onion; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic, serrano peppers and walnuts; cook 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in cinnamon and remaining 1 tablespoon chile powder and 1 teaspoon cumin. Stir in tomato sauce, cranberries and strained drippings; heat to a simmer. Stir in chocolate; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer chocolate mixture to blender; blend until smooth.
  5. Carve turkey and serve with mole.

Facts. Finds. Flavors.

If you don’t have a roasting rack, place giblets in roasting pan, then place turkey directly on giblets.
