Havarti is commonly paired with bolder flavours because it smooths out anything too sharp.

In a large skillet, melt butter and brown onion, garlic and peppers for 3–4 minutes.

Add spices. Cook 2 minutes.

Mix orange juice, salsa and barbecue sauce. Pour into skillet and let simmer for 3–4 minutes.

Add cooked turkey and cook until hot.

Place skillet on table and serve with reheated tortillas so that everyone can prepare their own fajita using the hot turkey mixture, lettuce and grated Monterey Jack.

Garnish with cilantro.
