Sweet and savory Mexican beef is great over saffron rice and as a filling for tortilla dishes or stuffed peppers. It is definitely better the 2nd day so make it a day ahead if possible.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over moderately low heat and saute the onions until softened; add the bell peppers, garlic, capers and almonds and cook, stirring, until the peppers are tender, about 4-6 minutes.

  3. Discard bay leaf; stir in remaining 1/4 cup sherry and the olives; serve.
