The title of this meal may sound like it's referring to personality flaws, or a square in London, but it's actually a Latin American or Filipino stew-like dish, often spicy, often served with rice, with many regional variations. We've topped our sweet potato and turkey picadillo with a fiery slaw instead, one that brings all the best flavors and textures together. Picca-what? Piccadelicious.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a

You Will Need
Medium Non-Stick Pans
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Customize It Instructions
If using ground beef, follow same instructions as turkey in Step 2, breaking up beef until no pink remains and beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.
If using Beyond sausage, crumble into bite-sized pieces. Follow same instructions as turkey in Step 2, breaking up sausage until sausage reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 6-8 minutes. Vegetarian sausage will not brown.
If using diced chicken thighs, pat dry. Follow same instructions as turkey in Step 2, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. Don't worry about trimming. Excess fat will render while cooking and add flavor.
Cook the Sweet Potatoes
Cut any large pieces of sweet potato to roughly match smaller pieces.
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.
Add sweet potato and a pinch of salt to hot pan in a single layer. Cook undisturbed until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
Stir in ¼ cup water. Cover, and stir occasionally until fork-tender, 5-7 minutes.
Uncover, and season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Remove from burner.
While sweet potatoes cook, cook turkey.
Start the Turkey
Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in another medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
Add ground turkey to hot pan. Stir occasionally, breaking up meat, until no pink remains and turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes.
Stir in seasoning blend.
While turkey cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare Ingredients and Finish Turkey
Core tomato and cut into ½" dice.
Stir corn, poblano, and tomato into hot pan with turkey until combined. Stir occasionally until tomato releases juices, 3-5 minutes.
If too dry, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, up to 4 Tbsp., until desired consistency is reached.
Stir in sweet potato, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper until combined. Remove from burner.
While vegetables cook, make slaw.
Make Slaw and Finish Dish
Taste green chili aioli. (Be careful, it's spicy!) In a mixing bowl, mix slaw mix, sour cream, green chili aioli (to taste), 1 Tbsp. water, and ¼ tsp. salt until combined.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping turkey mixture with slaw. Bon appétit!
