4 each oranges, juice from
1 can (92.5 oz) chiles chipotles
3 cup tequila

Preheat oven to 325~F. Rinse turkey and pat dry inside and out. Set

tequila and Grand Marnier. Have ready a basting syringe fitted with a
metal injection nozzle and inject the mixture all over the turkey.

roasting bag. Seal bag and cut 1/4-inch slit on the top to let steam
escape. Place in a roasting pan and roast for 2 1/2 hours. Every 30
minutes open bag (being careful to shield your face from steam) and
inject more liquor, eventually using it up. When ready to serve, slit
open bag, arrange turkey on a platter, and scoop out the fruit
stuffing. Place all the fruit in a serving bowl. Strain the juices
that have accumulated in the bag, skim off any fat, and serve in a
gravy boat. Serves 8 to 10
