Posted By Ben On April 14, 2009 @ 10:51 am In Main Dishes,Recipes | 21 Comments
- 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
- Heat up oil in a large skillet and saute onions. Add ground beef and cook until brown. Add garlic and stir well.
- 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.
- Adjust seasoning and simmer for 10 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated.
- Serve over tostadas, or as a filling for tacos, empanadas or fried quesadillas.
- 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.
