Default Green Chile wild turkey legs

Was going to make venison Gusada today and saw the turkey legs in the freezer last night.
If it goes well I will post a recipe.

Roast, peel, seed, and dice poblano peppers.
combine cumin, oregano, paprika, and coriander with chicken broth.
Mince garlic.
Chop onion and bell pepper.

1. Separate thighs and drum stick and salt and pepper them and set aside to rest for a few minutes.
2. Heat skillet over medium heat and add peanut oil
3. Brown turkey on all sides (should take 3-5 minutes per side)
4. Remove turkey and place in crock pot.

14. Return meat to crock pot and stir gently

Serve over rice or on tortilla with you favorite taco fixings.

I served over cauliflower rice garnished with cilantro and sliced avocado on the side.
