Turkey Picadillo

The ingredients:

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth.
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes or 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 chipotle adobado pepper, chopped
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 cup cooked potatoes, cubed (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste

The how-to:

  1. Heat up oil in a large skillet and saute onions. Add ground beef and cook until brown. Add garlic and stir well.
  2. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add tomato, peppers, oregano, cumin, bay leaves and potatoes. Bring to  boil again and reduce heat to low.
  3. Adjust seasoning and simmer for 10 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated.
  4. Serve over tostadas, or as a filling for tacos, empanadas or fried quesadillas.

The afterthoughts:

  • Although this dish was pretty close to my mom’s picadillo as I remember it, I think the turkey gives it a different flavor. I still like my mom’s better, but this one wasn’t bad at all, just different.

¡Buen provecho!
