"I love picadillo and here is a way to enjoy this comfort food with fewer calories than traditional beef-based versions. Traditionally, this is served with white rice. But could be served in lettuce leaves or alongside fried plantains. Adapted from original over at Sassy Spoon where I discovered this!"
