I liked this simple and easy just like my abuelita makes yes potatoes and all people!! It is not uncommon for picadillo to have potatoes in it...any way I think the only thing missing would be some tomatoes. Thanks =) Read More

This dish was a little plain. I added more seasoning and served with salsa and cheese. I am interested in trying it again and spicing it up; it has potential. I also want to add eggs to the leftovers for some breakfast tacos. Read More

I wasn't impressed at all. It was much better after I added some salsa and cheese then put it in a wrap. Read More

This is a good base but I made alot of changes. Here is my version of Turkey Picadillo. 1. Brown 1lb of turkey with half of a large onion diced. Cook until meat is done and onions are translucent. 2. Cut and cube about 3 to 4 Large potatoes or 5 to 6 medium add to meat and onion mixture. 3. Add enough water to cover the mixture add a can of diced tomatoes and a small can of tomato sauce. Season with salt pepper garlic and comino (cumin) let come to a boil and reduce to medium cover and cook until potatoes are tender. Let stand 5 min before serving with slightly thicken. Sprinkle with cheese and serve with beans and tortillas!!!! Read More

This is NOT a recipe for Picadillo. This seems to be a Spicy Turkey Hash. Picadillo traditionally includes tomato/tomato sauce in some form. It has an almost sweet and sour taste. Picadillo is delicious. However this is not a recipe for Picadillo. Please look elsewhere for another recipe. Thanks Read More

All I can say is YUM!! I submitted a pic of my husband enjoying the delicious Turkey Picadillo. I am not sure how to pronounce it but it was wonderful. We decided to serve it on soft corn tortillas. I disagree with alot of the people who have reviewed this recipe who said it was bland I'm not sure what they did but in our house there were absolutely no leftovers. YUM!! YUM!! YUM!! Read More

I liked the flavors. It did need some moisture so salsa fixed that right up. Read More
