    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Long before sloppy joes became an American classic, picadillo was a fixture in Cuba. It is economical, easy and quick -- a winning combination. In this version, inspired by *Eating Well* turkey is used as a lighter alternative to ground beef. Serve this over white rice with Almost Fried Plantains - Virtually Fat Free and a salad.

    Ingredients:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If using eggs, place in a small saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil; simmer on medium-low for 15 minutes. Drain, peel and slice and set aside.
    2. 2
      Cook meat and onions in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, crumbling the turkey with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. If you like, you can blot off any excess oil, more desireable if you are using ground beef.
    3. 3
      Add 1/2 cup scallions, diced carrots and garlic; cook over medium heat, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in chili powder, oregano, cumin, cinnamon and cayenne. Continue to cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add raisins, olives, tomato paste, water and stir to blend. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Season with pepper.
    4. 4
      Garnish with the remaining scallions and the hard-cooked eggs, if desired.

      I omitted the eggs and used 1 pound of ground turkey. It was very sweet and savory and tasted even better the next day. Not only will I make this again, I will double the recipe. Thanks, Toni!
