This Week’s Top Recipes
Category Archives: Latin
Picadillo is an easy step into Latin cuisine. The ingredients, though lengthy, are common and probably already in your kitchen. I’m a huge rice lover. I might even venture to say I like it more than pasta. So anytime I get to eat a big bowl of something over rice I am a happy girl. Serve over yellow rice, to get the full experience, but white rice will also do in a pinch.
I was actually going to try it with the raisins, but I forgot to pick them up at the store. So mine is missing the raisins. If you like the traditional picadillo with raisins then add them in, but I have never been a huge raisin fan and would always pick them out when I was younger.
This is a lightened version of picadillo with ground turkey. You can frequently find it on sale so I buy a few packages each time I see it. With ground turkey and I usually have peppers already in the freezer I could make this on one of my no shopping weeks.
I’m going to try to implement a no shopping week once a month. My grocery bill and freezer will thank me. I will be testing it out for a few months and then I will try no shopping weeks here on the blog. Everyone’s stock up items are different, but with a little creativity hopefully we can all cut down our grocery spending.
