      i made this with ground turkey to be healthier, and we loved it! i minced the olives so we would taste them in every bite and used red pepper instead of green because of our preference. served it with black beans and brown rice. tasted just like the picadillo i had the other night at the latin restaurant but not as greasy. yum!
