I am new to spicy food. I added the cayenne pepper a tiny bit at a time til I got to the spice level that was good for me. I too used prunes and doubled the amount used. (Love them!)Served with fresh bakery Kaiser rolls. This recipe is so great. Sweet and spicy at the same time. Just loved it. Am so glad that I ran out and bought all the ingredients so I could make as written. Thanks for sharing, Jeidippins. Just one little suggestion...remove the bay leaves before eating!!!
A satisfying, easy meal, but nothing really special about it.
Perhaps one of the best recipes I have made from this site. Very authentic. Works great with nacho chips, as a sloppy joe type of sandwich or just a dish served with rice.
Jeidi, thank you for a wonderful recipe! It is so tasty! , just like the one my grandmother prepared when I was growing up. She prepared picadillo with ground beef but your recipe is so good I did not even noticed the difference. This is a keeper.
The combination of ingredients seemed wierd to me at first (olives, black beans, raisins!?), but when it all came together, it was delicious. We served it over rice.
The cayenne pepper was too much for my tastes so I gave the recipe 4 stars. I even added less than called for. I will add twice the amount of raisins next time. Very yummy!
Very tasty. The ingredients reminded me of Chicken Marbella which I love. I substituted chopped prunes for raisins, otherwise I prepared it exactly as written and served it with brown rice. My picky toddlers ate it.
This "Turkey Picadillo II" was a tasty treat! I had to make mine making substitutions based on what I had on hand: ground chicken (instead of ground turkey); red peppers (instead of green peppers); and black olives (instead of green olives). It looked beautiful! I used only 1 teaspoon of cayenne. If I were to make this dish again, I would fry the spices with the poultry to take the raw edge off my freshly-ground cumin and to give the poultry some color (it never browned despite adding extra fat). Thank you jeidipippins for sharing your recipe.
