A Twist On A Classic: Turkey Picadillo

By Secondchancesgirl
A classic dish in Cuban households is picadillo (ground meat). You can serve it with rice and beans or use as a filling for empanadas. It cooks quickly and it a great dish for those evenings when I am super-rushed to make dinner. There are times where I buy ground turkey instead of ground meat. This led to a new family favorite: Turkey picadillo.
Turkey picadillo is cooked the exact same way as regular picadillo. Sometimes, I will even make changes to this dish and add sweet potato instead of regular potatoes. It is an extremely versatile dish!
Recipe: (Serves 6)
Ingredients:1 lb ground turkey1 yellow onion, chopped1 green bell pepper, chopped4 cloves garlic, chopped1 tbsp olive oil1 carrot, chopped8-10 salad olives (pitted)1 envelope of Sazon goya1 can tomato saucesalt and pepper2 potatoes, peeled and cubed1 1 oz box raisins
In a pan over high heat, drizzle olive oil and add onions, peppers and garlic and cook for a few minutes, until soft. Add ground turkey, carrots, olives and cook until meat is browned.  Add one envelope of Sazon Goya, salt and pepper to taste and tomato sauce, mix together and cook for a few minutes. Then add potatoes and raisins, cover pot and cook over medium heat until potatoes soften. Serve over rice.
