Since Puerto Rico is a territory of the States, we celebrate Thanksgiving with the traditional turkey for dinner. But when the time comes to season our turkey, we like to give it a toque of Puerto Rican sazón. It's dressed in the same was as our delicious lechón asado (roasted pork,) which gave rise to the name “Pavochón”- a combination of the Spanish words for turkey (pavo) and roasted pork (lechón.) This style of turkey preparation originated in the lechoneras or local (pork) restaurants on the island, made to attract customers who don't prefer pork.
