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.
