I have always loved Picadillo and got excited to find this one using ground turkey. The bonus to this recipe is that those who are diabetic can enjoy this too without guilt. This recipe comes from a magazine clipping sometime last year (2007).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the turkey in a nonstick skillet with the onion, green pepper, and garlic over medium heat until the turkey is no longer pink about 6 to 7 minutes. Mix in the oregano and cloves.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, water, tomato paste, olives, raisins, and ground red pepper. Cook stirring every once in a while for about 15 minutes. Stir in the vinegar and salt if you are using and cook until it is heated through.
  3. Diabetic Exchanges: 2 3/4 lean meat, 1/2 fruit. 2 3/4 vegetable, 1/2 fat.
