Kaq Ik:

Spicy Turkey Stew

Ingredients:
3 turkey breasts (cut into pieces)
8 cups chicken stock
8 cloves garlic (whole)
3 tomatoes (diced)
2 tomatillos ("husk tomatoes") *optional
2 while onions (diced)
2 red peppers (chopped)

1-2 Tbs chipotle peppers (dried or in adobo)(minced)
1/2 cup water
1 Tbs achiote paste/seasoning
6 corn tortillas
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
1/3 cup mint


Prepare the chicken stock in a large pot. 
Place in raw turkey, whole garlic cloves, and salt. 
Bring to a gentle boil.

In a separate pan saute tomato, onion, red-pepper, 
guajillo chile, pasilla chile, and chipotle pepper until soft.

Once fully cooked, add 1/2 cup water and puree with a blender.

Once the turkey is cooked, add vegetable puree, cilantro, and mint. 
Mix achiote with a few spoons of stew to create a paste, then add to stew.

Tear corn tortillas up into small pieces and add to pot. 
Bring to boil for 5-10 minutes. Tortillas should dissolve and thicken stew.
