Talking to other people while you’re cooking, it doesn’t come naturally.
I’ve had dozen of different tacos over the years. Whether it’s chicken, pork, beef or turkey, been there done that. But this Turkey Picadillo taco filling is probably one of the most unique tacos I’ve ever eaten. Potatoes, apple, raisins, green chilies, cinnamon, yeah, this is one unique taco filling. It’s very similar but different than Ofelia’s Cuban Picadillo. While they share the same name and both equally delicious, they are very different. I suggest you try both recipes and let me know what you think.
