4 servings (serving size: 1 cup picadillo and 3/4 cup rice)

Picadillo, a classic Cuban dish, remains popular because it's so easy to make, and because of its appealing sweet and savory flavors. Although picadillo is traditionally made with ground beef, using ground turkey offers a great lower-fat alternative. Typical accompaniments are white rice and ripe plantains.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes. Add turkey and garlic; cook 5 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Add broth and next 5 ingredients (broth through pepper); stir well. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes. Serve with rice. Garnish with parsley sprigs, if desired.
