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.
Truly, a dish that brings the taste of Old Mexico to your kitchen. We love picadillo, and we really loved this one. Easy to assemble, and easy to prepare, and very easy to eat!!! I served it as an appetizer with tostadas. It was enough to feed the family without overfeeding them before dinner. We loved the flavors of the cinnamon, cloves, and cumin mixed together with the raisins, apple and olives. I recommend this dish to anyone wanting to make a delightful meal or appetizer.
This was delicious! I used it as a filling for soft, hand made corn tortillas. Yum!
Delicious comfort food with white rice! I added a small 8 oz can of tomato sauce to make it "saucier," 2 tsps of chili powder, some black pepper and a dash of cayenne (all 3 to tone down the sweetness) and upon serving sprinkled some fresh cilantro on top. I omitted the almonds and next time I'll omit the sugar as well. Unfortunately, the kids didn't like it so next time I'll set aside some of the meat and cook with taco seasoning so they can have tacos while we have picadillo.
BERGY! You are an ANGEL! My grandmother made this for my family 22 years ago...until your recipe, no one in our family has EVER been able to figure out what it was she made that was so eclectic...most people who havent tried it will think it sounds strange...but when you try it...there is NOTHING like it! Your picadillo recipe is the closest to what she made... Im going to add white rice, and minus the apples and almonds...everything else is RIGHT on! THANKS A MILLION! You have made my day! My mother, aunts and I are sooo happy to find this recipe after all these years!!!
