Turkey Picadillo....it's what's for dinner

"We love the fine folks at JD Farms and I love cooking with their turkey products. Tonight I just happened to have some of their fresh ground turkey in the fridge so this is my riff on a Cuban Classic. I am serving my Picadillo with steamed brown basmati rice & fresh tortilla shells." - Angie.
