  1. Make the Tomatillo Salsa: Preheat broiler. Place tomatillos in broiling pan without rack. Place pan in broiler 5 to 6 inches from source of heat and broil tomatillos 10 minutes or until blackened in spots and blistering, turning tomatillos over once. When tomatillos are turned, add poblano, skin side up, to pan and broil 6 minutes or until charred.

  2. In blender or food processor with knife blade attached, pulse tomatillos, poblano, shallot, lime juice, salt, and sugar until chopped. Stir in cilantro. Cover and refrigerate salsa up to 3 days if not serving right away. Makes about 2 cups.

  3. Prepare Turkey and Onion Fajitas: In medium bowl, toss turkey tenderloins or chicken with fajita seasoning and 2 teaspoons oil. Brush onion slices with remaining 2 teaspoons oil.

  4. Place turkey or chicken and onions on hot grill rack. Cook turkey 15 to 20 minutes (chicken 10 to 12 minutes) or until juices run clear when thickest part is pierced with tip of knife (internal temperature of turkey tenderloins should be 170 degrees F on meat thermometer), turning turkey or chicken over once. Cook onions 12 to 15 minutes or until tender and golden, turning them over once.

  5. While turkey or chicken is cooking, place several tortillas on same grill and heat just until lightly browned, removing to a sheet of foil as they brown. Wrap tortillas in foil and keep warm.

  6. To assemble fajitas: Transfer onions to bowl. Transfer turkey or chicken to cutting board and thinly slice. Top tortillas with equal amounts of turkey or chicken and onion; spoon some salsa on each and fold over to eat out of hand. Serve with any remaining onions and salsa.
