Apple Turkey Picadillo

September/October 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (97 votes)

This twist on the Latin American staple is made healthier with lean ground turkey and crisp apples. It doubles well. Try tucking it into whole-wheat tortillas or serve over instant brown rice for a quick and healthy supper.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Yum. I also grew up with this dish born and raised in California and always loved it spicy and tangy. Add some chopped de-veined jalapeno, finish it with some cilantro and a squirt of lime juice. YUM! "

Laura: Maybe you could Google "Tzatziki Sauce" and create a version of that. I think you have a good idea there!

We really liked this, although I made a few changes. I used a pound of ground turkey and a can of diced tomatoes instead of the whole tomato. I also had to substitute black olives because I didn't have green. I added a bit more of all of the spices and also added cayenne pepper to spice it up a little more. Delicious!

I have made this several times (perhaps once a year?), and love the unusual combination of flavors. My husband and 6 year old also like it. As tomatoes are out of season, I often use diced, no salt added canned tomatoes. This recipe might be a bit sweet for those who don't prefer any sweetness in a main course.

As a Puerto Rican who grew up eating "regular" picadillo, and loving it, this was a tough sell. The is dish is inspired by the original, but is its own animal. It has totally different flavor, of course, given the ingredients (apple cider vinegar being the key, in my opinion). It's a healthy alternative to the original, and a crowd-pleaser. I add a whole can of tomatoes to make it saucier, and serve it over white rice.
