Piñon Nut and Fresh Roasted Green Chile Stuffing

Piñon Nut and Fresh Roasted Green Chile Stuffing

Makes 10C stuffing, or enough for a 14LB turkey.

3-5 Fresh green chiles or 1/2C diced canned green chile (Fresh-roasted chile has a far better taste)
6 C Dry bread crumbs
1/3 C Finely chopped parsley
1/2 C Chopped celery
1/3 C Finely chopped white onion
2 TSP Poultry seasoning
1 TSP Salt
3/4 C Shelled piñon nuts
2 C Chicken or turkey broth

1. Combine bread crumbs, parsley, onion, spices, celery, piñon nuts and 1/2C of roasted green chili. Toss all ingredients. Add broth slowly while stirring and let stand until moistened.
2. Stuff your turkey and roast as usual. You may try adding piñon nuts and green chili to your family recipe. I would suggest that you reduce the level of spice because of the delicate flavor of the piñon nuts.
3. Butter is not used in this recipe due to the natural oil in the piñon nuts.
