Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 smoked turkey legs, cut into 1-inch thick pieces
  • 4 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 4 red bell peppers - cored, seeded, and cut into chunks
  • 6 tomatoes, cut into chunks
  • 1 onion, cut into chunks
  • 4 habanero peppers, seeded and chopped (wear gloves)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • salt to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Place the turkey legs into a large saucepan, pour in enough water to barely cover, and add the bouillon cubes. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and cook until the water has nearly evaporated, about 30 minutes. Place the red bell peppers, tomatoes, onion, habanero peppers, garlic, and tomato paste into a blender, and blend until the vegetables are pureed. Be careful because the habanero peppers are very hot -- don't touch your eyes after handling peppers.
  2. 2 Heat the vegetable oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat, and pour the blended mixture into the oil. Reduce heat and simmer until the oil separates and the sauce begins to fry, about 30 minutes; stir the turkey into the sauce, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes to blend the flavors. Season to taste with salt.

  1. Amazing recipe!!! Made it last night. The thing I did different was use cut up chicken breast and spicy turkey sausage and added cilantro to my Jasmin rice. The sauce stayed the same and It was absolutely DELICIOUS!! I shared at work (those who can handle it) loved it too. Thanx:-)
  2. I guess i was expecting more from the dish. I made it according to the recipe next time I make this dish I'll have to find ways to modify it to my households liking. Will try it again
  3. I made this dish a day before I actually served it to my family. All the flavors were able to settle in and really come together. At first I was considering not adding the salt to season with the smoked turkey legs however I added it and I feel it was just the kick the - Read more ...
  4. I make this all the time using canned crushed tomatoes instead of fresh. If you go to an international food store you can get african red pepper. Use a couple of tablespoons if you like it hot. Also tastes good with chunks of fried beef roast and tripe.
