I always want to offer and make easy, simple and healthy alternatives to my family, and this recipe is just the perfect example of why I love to cook.
My grandmother use to make this picadillo with lots of red meat, and I love it don’t get me wrong, but one day I decide to make it more simple and healthier for me and my family.
Just changing some ingredients and substituting the red meat with turkeywas enough to make the picadillo a great and healthy meal. I do love to cook with turkey and is present even in our hamburgers, yes I made turkey patties from scratch and is one of our favorite every Sunday.
Turkey is really good for you not only is a lean protein, in fact, turkey is a very versatile protein. It absorbs the flavor of spices and sauces providing a lean protein canvas for favorite recipes. In many cases, using turkey can mean a healthier dish with fewer calories.
So I did a turkey recipe remix of my grandmother’s recipe, and let me tell you everybody love it so much that it has become a favorite of us on Tuesday night, I know many of you will say that Tuesdays are for tacos, but in my house Tuesdays are for Turkey not only is super delicious but it is so versatile. I made my picadillo with ground turkey but you can also use turkey sausage, is equally delicious.
Heat a pot over medium heat, add onions and bell pepper, cook for 3 minutes, then add the ground turkey and cook for about 5 minutes, moving constantly.
Add the rest of the ingredients, mix until well combine, cover the pot and cook for 20 minutes over low heat. This slow cooking process is very important for the potatoes and turkey to absorb all the delicious flavors. Remember to check the salt before serving and you can always serve with a side of salad
In this occasion I want to share with you a delicious appetizer idea to help give thanks on this Thanksgiving day.
This recipe is great to be pair with Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio, this delicious and delicate wines are the perfect compliment for your Thanksgiving dinner. This are fantastic wines, specially when pair with poultry, sweet and with a delicate flavor.
One of the things I love the most in this season is the idea of sharing valuable time with my family and friends and I also enjoy having a delicious meal and a good wine. They are great for gift and even better when you add some extra love in the bag, nothing better than a good jar full of love.
In my house we are always prepare, I made my signature turkey croquets with mushroom sauce and my husband help me with keeping our guest happy, passing along the wine.
My personal favorite is the Pinot Grigio, it has a sweet kind of flavor and for me these style of wines are the best. I also like my wine cool and ready to serve, that is why we also keep a bucket with ice to keep the wine cool, refreshing and delicious, it doesn’t matter how cold it is outside, my wine has to be cool.
And I think most of the people think the same makes me very happy because when I share personal and important moment with my family I want to be with all my favorite things at once.
Giving thanks is very important, and you must do it all the time not only on a special day, you can thank you husband, wife or significant other for sharing their life with you. You can thank you kids for been so amazing and wonderful, and you can thank yourself, yes you are a very important person that makes a lot of things possible, and keep the balance in the family. All your hard work must be notice and you need to give you a big hug and thank you for all the wonderful thing you do.
