Original recipe yields 6 servings
- 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.
- 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.

"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. Als..." See moreo tastes good with chunks of fried beef roast and tripe."

"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 smok..." See moreed turkey legs however I added it and I feel it was just the kick the stew needed. My family loved it. My son got seconds my husband took some to work for lunch. I only put in two peppers as I had a three year old to consider and she enjoyed it just fine. Next time I think instead of turkey I will use grilled chicken and shrimp as I don't want to get into the habit of serving a meat that is so salty.Once you puree everything it smells like a great salsa that you just want to chill and dip chips in however once you heat it up it takes on a different smell. Any meat probably could go with it. You don't need the entire one cup of oil. You could certainly get away with half a cup. Yummy dish!!! Will make this again. Thanks for posting this great recipe."
