When I broke the news that we had to make a
We had turkey picadillo over jasmine rice, and steamed green beans. I highly suggest making this meal, you are going to love it!
Here's how to pull off this meal in 30 minutos.
First make the turkey picadillo.
Turkey Picadillo (10 minutes prep time, 20 minutes cook time)
2 T. olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. ground turkey
1/4 C. red wine
1 can tomato sauce (6 or 8 oz.)
2 t. adobo seasoning
1/2 t. oregano
pinch salt, or to taste
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
1 bay leaf
handful of raisins
handful of pimento stuffed green olives, plus 1 T. of the olive juice
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the onions and the bell pepper, and cook for a few minutes until the onions become slightly translucent. If they start to brown, turn the heat down a bit.
Add the garlic, and stir for a minute more until fragrant. Add the ground turkey, and cook until cooked through, chopping with a spatula. Add the wine, tomato sauce, adobo seasoning, oregano, bay leaf, and salt and pepper to taste. Then, add the raisins and olives with the juice.
Cover with a lid, turn heat to low, and simmer until ready to serve. Discard the bay leaf before serving.
Serve over rice.
Once you have the picadillo covered and simmering, put up the rice. The rice I made took 20 minutes to cook. You could also make the rice before the picadillo.
While the rice and picadillo are cooking, steam the green beans.
Voila! A tasty meal on the table in 30 minutes.
