This is my husband's comfort food. He was raised on this and requests it for his birthday and Father's Day every year. This was his mother's recipe; I have named it in her memory.
- 2 large potatoes or 3 medium potatoes
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 green pepper, chopped
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 2 teaspoons beef bouillon granules
- 1 1⁄2 cups salsa (medium)
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- flour tortilla, warmed
- Dice potatoes into approximately 1/2 inch cubes.
- In a large frying pan, cook the potatoes in oil until lightly crisped and browned, about 10-15 minutes.
- Remove from the pan and set aside.
- In the same pan, saute onion and bell pepper until limp.
- Add ground beef and cook until crumbled and brown.
- Add potatoes back to pan, and add bouillon, salsa and water.
- Reduce heat and let simmer uncovered for about 45 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally.
- Serve with warm flour tortillas.
A guisado is almost like a stew, intead of ground beef why not try beef cubes, I think that would work out alot better than the ground-beef. At least thats my idea. Sorry!!!!!!!!!
This is not guisado, more like picadillo con papas.
I'm sorry, we didn't really care for this. It was a really bland and it took almost 2 hours for the potatoes to cook. I believe we followed the recipe correctly, but we just didn't care for the taste.
