Aztec Annie's Thanksgiving Turkey

Well, seems I never learn. Had some nice fall days down here in West Texas and I wandered out to the Patio to relax with a tall cool one and enjoy the nice weather. So who showed up, but my Dear Sweet Italian Fairy Godmother, and not only her but her pal Aztec Annie.

"Jeez", I thought, "What brought on this surprise?"
"Hello, Dear Sweet Italian Fairy Godmother, and how are you Aztec Annie? It's been awhile since you were here."
"Oh!, we fine," Aztec Annie replied.
"Hey, you learned to communicate, Annie, that's great. Last time you were here I only understood one or two words."
"Yea, your Dear Sweet Italian Fairy Godmother, she teach me Anglish and I teach her Aztecc."
"Oh, Oh, Will My Dear Sweet Italian Fairy Godmother ever talk to me again?"
"Sure, I talk to you," she sez, "Juse ta because I learn another language no mean I can't takla to you. But this time Aztec Annie gonn'a give you a nice new way to make'a some turkey for Thanksgiving."
"Aztec turkey?" I wondered to myself.
"That's it," said Annie, reading my thoughts, "You gonna call this Aztec Thanksgiving Turkey, an' nobody knows about this."
"Well I appreciate all this Annie, but how come you are so nice to me?"
"You nice to me, when I no know how to speak a da Anglish, you don't laugh at me. I don't forget."
"Gee, that's nice Annie. Tell me all about this Aztec Turkey."
"Tatatatatatatataatatatatataatatatataattatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatatat, You got all that?"
"Sure do Annie, How'd you do that?"
"Dat my secret, you go do your thing."
And swoosch, they were both gone, but now I have a nice new Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe to share with all the world, whoever. So here is an

Aztec Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe

straight from the forgotten world of
the Mayans, the Incas, the Aztecs, and all
the rest of the lost tribes of the Amazon wilderness.

Here is what you will need:
    One Boneless Turkey Breast about 5 pounds, slice it in 6 pieces. Once down the middle and then 3 slices of each half.
    1 stick of butter.
    3 finely chopped garlic cloves.
    2 cans cream of chicken soup, undiluted.
    2 sweet white onions, chopped.
    1 lb grated American Cheese.
    1 large bag, 6 or more ozs nacho chips, crushed.
    2 cans HOT Rotel Tomatoes.
    2 cans Cream of Mushroom soup, undiluted.

And here is how we do it:

Melt the butter with the garlic in a large deep baking pan or a 6 to 8 qt dutch oven. Lay the pieces of turkey breast in the melted butter, you can turn them once to make sure they are coated with the melted butter. Now layer the remaining ingredients over the top of the turkey pieces.
Bake this at 350, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes.

This should serve 6 hungry thankful guests.
A jug of white wine will flush it all down.

Happy Thanksgiving, Ya'all
Take Care Now, Ya'heah!

Comment: Please, Leo, I'm on a heart-health diet! With 4 cans of soup this recipe must have about a month's worth of sodium in it. Then there's the Rotel! (Actually the healthy part, that.) Thanks for introducing us to Aztec Annie. Wish I could have seen the tatatatatatatatatata part.
