Santa Fe Turkey


These turkey breasts get marinated in Southwestern flavors and then grilled hot and fast. Remember that when using a marinade as a baste you have to stop basting a few minutes before you remove the turkey from the grill.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless turkey breast
  • 2 cups diced plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeno pepper
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


With a meat mallet, flatten turkey breast to about 1/2 inch thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place in a shallow baking dish. Combine lime juice and olive oil and pour over turkey, coating evenly. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours, turning occasionally. Combine tomatoes, onion, cilantro, jalapeno pepper and vinegar. Cover and chill. Preheat grill. Place turkey on grill for about 5-7 minutes per side, brushing occasionally with remaining marinade. Remove when done and cut into thin slices. Serve with salsa.
