    Starman5's Note:

    This is a copycat version of the Stripes convenience store's Laredo Taco Company's picadillo. It can be served as a main dish, or for a filling for soft tacos, enchiladas, chili rellenos and empanadas. Stripes is a convenience store in the southern states, similar to 7-11 stores. Laredo Taco Company is the name of the in-store Mexican cafe located in a majority of the Stripes stores.

    1. 1
      Put the water, onions, garlic, bell peppers and potatoes in a stew pot and bring to a boil. Turn the temperature to low, cover the pot, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the tomatoes, bran, and spices to the pot and simmer for 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      While the potatoes are cooking, heat a skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil and brown the meat, crumbling it up as it cooks.
    4. 4
      Add the meat to the stew pot, cover, and simmer 10 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender (it is better to overcook the potatoes than to under cook them).

      i went crazy with the hot pepper sauce - which I had to substitute for the hot pepper stuff listed. So, it was way too hot for me, but my DH loved it and gave it 5 stars. I like the combination of ingredients and will make it again and adjust the heat. Oh, I have no idea what Laredo Taco Company is, so that wasn't my motivation for trying, nor can I make any comparison to the original! made for PAC Spring 2012
