Place turkey in a brine bag or other large container. Pour cooled brine mixture over the bird. Add cold water until the bird is fully submerged and seal bag tightly. Brine in the refrigerator for 30 minutes per pound. For turkeys less than 12 lbs, use 1/2 jar.

4 Servings 10 Minutes 15-20 Minutes Hot

Thoroughly wash the kale with cold water. Dry with paper towels. Using kitchen shears, cut the leaves away from the thick stem. Discard the stem. Roughly chop the leaves. 

Heat olive oil in a heavy, large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook 2 minutes. Add kale and Rio Grande Chili Blend. Using tongs, stir the ingredients until the kale has wilted, about 5 minutes. Add garbanzo beans and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper (add additional Rio Grande Chili for more heat).

*Note: This may look like a lot of kale, but it cooks down tremendously.
