Yuuuummmmyyy! I made the original recipe once, coring and peeling the tomatoes--not cut out for that. Have made it again and again with canned diced tomatoes. Used it as the meat for taco salad on a Bunko night--the ladies raved about it.

This was terrible! There is no sauce or flavor whatsoever. I thought it sounded good from reading the recipe but after I started putting he ingredients together I could tell it wasn't going to be very good. Hamburger, potatoes, onions, green peppers, tomatoes, salt, pepper, and cumin, pretty bland without a sauce to go with it. I ended up adding some taco sauce to save it, it made it edible but not by much. I won't be making this again...

This is a great recipe! Something different to do with ground beef! I put the meat in the food processor after it cooked to make it tiny and after added the onion, garlic, etc.. It was served with white rice. So good! The kids loved it. If you enjoy spicy then you should throw in a pepper or Tabasco or Sriracha. This is the perfect empanada or pastelito filling also! Thanks!

Very tasty! My roommate was determined to make his grandmother's picadillo recipe for us, but then discovered that her hadnwritten copy was a bit lacking in directions. :) To his great delight, I found this version -- which is virtually identical to hers. We ended up using this recipe, with me assisting him (he's the less-experienced cook but the expert on how his grandmother's tasted) with great results. We served it in flour tortillas, with guac and chips. The only thing we'd do differently is to make sure that the potatoes are in fact diced small enough, and to perhaps add some heat by way of jalapenos or other hot pepper.
