A note about serious food allergies

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.

Cooking Guidelines

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.

  1. 1

    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 1/4 cup water. Cover, and stir occasionally until fork-tender, 5-7 minutes.

    Uncover, and season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Remove from burner.

    While sweet potatoes cook, cook turkey.

  2. 2

    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.

  3. 3

    Prepare Ingredients and Finish Turkey

    Core tomato and cut into 1/2" 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, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper until combined. Remove from burner.

    While vegetables cook, make slaw.

  4. 4

    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 1/4 tsp. salt until combined.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping turkey mixture with slaw. Bon appétit!
