Pavo Relleno is what is served in many homes along with Pernil de Cerdo, Tamales and Hayacas for Christmas holiday season events. Normally turkeys were given Aguardiente* or rum to get them drunk before being killed to be prepared for the festivities.
I have used this filling for many years and changed it a bit over time, such as adding Dijon mustard, but otherwise it is the traditional beef and pork filling. Count one pound of raw turkey per serving.
