Introduction

As a Brasilian, I grew up eating picadinho, a ground meat dish. This is a lighter version of picadinho, made with 94% ground turkey. I flavored it with mexican spices (cilantro, cumin, a dash of chilli powder and a pinch of cayenne).
Picadinho goes great inside a quesadilla, stuffed into a baked potato, served along side veggies and oven fries...

    This was a quick and easy dish to prepare. Paired with some leftover brown wholegrain rice, a tiny bit of shredded colby jack, and rolled in a low carb tortilla like a burrito. Also subbed a couple things in to suit my taste, and the recipe was quite forgiving. Hubby raved about it! - 8/3/10
