Picadillo can be used to stuff green peppers, rolled in a tortilla (add cheese), or used as an appetizer served with fresh hot tortillas or corn chips, Make small masa cakes about a dollar size put on some picadillo and soft cheese and salsa MMmm. It has many uses and is a traditional filling in Mexico

I had this years ago when on a mission trip to Mexico. I was very glad to see this posted. I put the filling in tortillas with a little MJ cheese and rolled up. Spicy and so yummy. Brought back some very fond memories. Thanks Bergy.
