Turkey Picadillo

I serve this over shortcut pasta or egg noodles and garnish it with sour cream and a sprinkling of chopped scallions. Any leftovers reheat wonderfully. —Anita Pinney, Santa Rosa, California

    This was great. My husband and I agreed that we will make it again.The recipe uses few ingredients, most of which you're likely to have on hand, and it comes together quickly. It makes a very generous four servings. I added a half tsp of ground cumin and half a fresh jalapeno (minced). Even with the addition of the jalapeno the heat level was very tame, making it a dish that anyone should love--just add hot sauce if you want it hotter.
