    Babs in Toyland's Note:

    I used to love eating Picadillo when I lived in Key West many years ago. Found this recipe in the paper so I can now enjoy this again. I don't eat beef so I use ground turkey breast instead. Easy quick little dinner.

      A delicious, surprising combination of flavors and textures. Even my husband, who never gives any of my cooking more than four stars, likes it a lot. I did play a little fast and loose with the recipe. I had some brown rice already cooked, so I browned the beef and threw in everything else (minus the water) and cooked it all together. The olives were kind of small, so I threw in some extras. This combo is definitely a winner. When I make it again, I'll toast the almonds in the toaster oven. Thanks for the recipe!
