I've made many variations of picadillo, but this was the easiest so far and one of the tastiest. Like Susie, I added some zucchini but otherwise made as directed except for the celery seed which I didn't have. Used some celery salt instead and omitted the other 1/4 teaspoon of salt, so I think I got the taste right. I'll make this again. Thanks for sharing :)<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Caribbean for The Apron String Travelers
I love picadillo in many forms and thought this one would be a perfect introduction to the flavors for someone looking to try picadillo. It is also quick cooking and would be a great weeknight skillet meal. I did make a few changes; using ground turkey for lower fat and adding more veggies. I added a zucchini, a bell pepper, and a hand full of shredded carrots as I try to sneak those veggies in where possible. The spices were well used. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
This was my first taste of Picadillo, and I must admit that I was a little scared when I saw the ingredients, but this was amazing. It has the perfect amount of spice with pings of sweetness when you eat the raisins and apples. Thanks for another great recipe Dreamer!
