This Lower Carb Picadillo is a classic Mexican dish made with a spicy chipotle tomato sauce, ground beef, carrots, onions, and turnips in place of the more traditional potatoes.
Picadillo is something my husband requests about once a week. Growing up in Mexico city, it is one of his favorite dishes and something I had never had or prepared until we met. The first time he mentioned it, I wasn't thrilled about the idea of it, until I tasted it. Now it is one of my favorites as well. Traditionally it is made with potatoes but turnips are a great substitute to keep the carb count lower. Also make sure to choose a tomato sauce without any added sugar. Lastly if you want to make this in the slow cooker, just brown the meat first and then add everything to the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.
