Chili Cheese Turkey Recipe: A Flavorful Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe Inspired By a Hot Dog

Want to have a little fun this Thanksgiving? This chili cheese roasted turkey recipe takes its inspiration from one of the nation's most indulgent hot dog styles for a juicy, flavorful turkey.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours
Total Time: Up to 5 hours


  • 1 10- to 16-pound turkey

Chili Rub

For Serving (see note)

  • 2 pounds crinkle-cut fries
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1 cup chili
  • 1 large jalapeno, cut into 1/8-inch rounds
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup sour cream

Here's how to make it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Mix all ingredients for the chili rub. Reserve 2 to 3 tablespoons of the rub for the finished turkey.
  2. Tear off a sheet of Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil that is 2 1/2 times longer than the turkey. Place in a roasting pan that is at least 2 inches deep. 
  3. Remove neck and giblets from turkey, rinse and pat turkey dry. Place turkey lengthwise in center of foil sheet to cook. If desired, loosely stuff turkey.
  4. Coat turkey with chili rub.
  5. Close foil loosely by overlapping the ends. Turn up short sides of foil to hold in juices. Do not seal airtight. Place foil-wrapped turkey in roasting pan at least 2 inches deep. Insert a meat thermometer through the foil and into thickest part of the inner thigh, not touching the bone.
  6. Roast the turkey until the meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F, about 2 hours 45 minutes to 3 hours 15 minutes for a 14-pound unstuffed turkey.
  7. Transfer turkey to a serving dish. Sprinkle the reserved rub on top. Dress the plate with fries, chili, half of the shredded cheese, half of the red onions and half of the jalapenos. Drizzle sour cream on top of the turkey, then sprinkle on additional shredded cheese, red onion and jalapenos.

Note: Dressing quantities may vary depending on the size of your turkey and serving platter.
