Low fat & Healthy Turkey Picadillo Sandwiches; Inexpensive, Kid Friendly, and Perfect for Weeknight Dinner

Low Fat & Healthy; (Turkey) Picadillo Sandwiches-HeDoesXrayIDoFood.com

This Cuban staple is a hearty dinner or lunch option full of flavor, but not of fat. My version features a tomato laced sauce that permeates the lean ground turkey in place of the traditional fat/grease laden ground pork chorizo and 80/20% fat ground chuck. Briny green olives and fragrant capers are balanced by touches of tart golden berries or raisins. This easy to make, one pan meal will quickly become a family favorite. Serve with a side of Quick and Easy Cuban Style Black Beans (from canned) and dinner is done!
