  1. Add salt, pepper, chipotle peppers, olive oil, paprika, garlic cloves, chopped red onion, adobo sauce and honey in a blender and blend until you get a smooth sauce. In a ziplock, add cleaned up turkey breasts and to it add this chipotle sauce. Massage using your hands and let it sit in refrigerator for 4-8 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, get your salsa ready. In a microwave safe bowl, place peeled tomatillos and cranberries along with some water and cook for 3-4 minutes in microwave. No add softened tomatillos, cranberries, red onion, jalapeno, cilantro, garlic cloves, salt, cumin powder, oregano in a food processor and blend until it's pureed but still somewhat chunky. Taste and adjust seasonings. You might want to add lime juice and/or honey or sugar as per your taste.
  3. Transfer it to a pot and cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Keep it aside.
  4. Now cook turkey with little oil on a skillet and chop in pieces.
  5. Assemble tacos by warming up the tortillas and placing some cooked turkey in there along with salsa, onions, tomatoes and cheese/sour cream! Enjoy with chilled beer.
