Game Day Turkey Picadillo

TurkeyPicadillo

Ingredients

2 medium Yukon Gold potatoes

Kosher salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium onion, minced

1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and minced

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 1/2 pounds lean (90/10) ground turkey

2 cups beef broth

1/2 pound fresh tomatoes, coarsely chopped

1/4 cup golden raisins

1 teaspoon ground cumin

Pinch of dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Place potatoes in a large pot with enough water to cover; season with salt. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool.

Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper and garlic, and cook until softened, about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

Crumble the ground turkey into the onion mixture and use a wooden spoon to break the meat into smaller pieces as it begins to cook. Cook until the turkey is completely browned, about 5 minutes. Drain as much fat from the meat as possible.

Stir in the beef broth, tomatoes, raisins, cumin, oregano, black pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to medium-low. Simmer until the broth reduces and the mixture looks like chili, 8-10 minutes.

Peel the cooled potatoes and cut into chunks. Gently fold the cooked potatoes into the simmering beef mixture and cook for 5 minutes more.
