Ground Beef Picadillo, Mexican-Style

Picadillo is my go-to dish when I don't know what to make, it's easy to make, budget-friendly, delicious, and versatile. 
The word picadillo comes from the Spanish picar, or “to mince,” and as such, picadillo is typically made with ground beef. Ingredients vary by region, but picadillo usually includes Roma tomatoes (or tomato sauce), raisins, onion, and chile peppers. Picadillo can be served as a main dish with white rice, black beans, and plantains, or as a filling for tacos, burritos, and empanadas. 





How to Make Ground Beef Picadillo

In a large skillet, add ground beef, cumin, garlic, salt, and pepper cook until beef is browned.

Add potatoes, diced jalapeño, onions, tomatoes, peas, diced carrots, tomato sauce, and broth cook until potatoes are tender.

 

How to Store Ground Beef Picadillo

Picadillo should be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When stored properly, it is good for up to five days.
This recipe is great for Make-Ahead Meals. It will keep well in the freezer for 3 months in an airtight storage container.
