Perfect Picaddillo

Recipe by Clifford Boren

An old recipe that I tweaked quite a bit for more savory. Serve with a green salad or coleslaw. Spice amounts are for mild. Punch it up a bit if you like hot.

This recipe was wonderful!! I loved every bite! The sweetness of the raisins is a nice contrast to the olives and capers-the combination of flavors were right on the money. I did add extra corn (alot extra) just because..well, I don't know why--I just did..and couldn't have been more pleased. This is a very forgiving recipe, also-I didn't realize that I was out of Worchestershire until it was too late, so I threw in a tablespoon of soy sauce, and it still tasted great, so I guess I didn't mess it up too badly! Thank you, Clifford, for one terrific recipe that I will be making MANY times in the future!! TERESA
