The nice thing of this recipe is that you can make enough turkey picadillo and freeze half for later enjoyment. Adding more potatoes and mushrooms increases the volume without increasing the cost. Watch the video to learn more.

If your family does not like mushrooms you can ground them in the blender or a food processor and combine with the turkey ground meat. This hides the mushrooms and add more flavor and volume for a better option.

This Mexican turkey picadillo can be flavored with homemade taco seasoning. Just combine ground paprika, garlic, cumin, rotisserie chicken spice, salt and pepper to taste. Or you can buy your favorite packet of taco seasoning available a the supermarket.

This recipe is versatile and you can add your own flavors and combinations. If want to use crispy taco shells instead of tortilla bowls you can. This recipe is also good for burritos or soft tacos with flour tortillas.
