El Salvadoran Roast Turkey

Get fired up for El Salvadoran Roast Turkey. My husband is half Mexican and half El Salvadoran. That means I get fed REALLY WELL when I’m with his family. And while you may think that each country’s food is the same, that is not the case. Both are so delicious and both so unique. Mexican food is like super-delicious party food. Flavor-bursting, crunchy, creamy food. El Salvadoran food is more like serious, at-home comfort food.
