Recipe by cannedfood

Cuban inspired, this hearty chili dip gets its signature flavor from its chilies, cinnamon spice, sweet pineapple and raisins – a great way to fit in vitamin-C rich fruit. Its name “picadillo” means “minced meat,” a common ingredient in chili. Serve this flavorful dip with baked tortilla chips or crusty bread.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (15 ounce) canno-beans chili
  • 1 (8 ounce) can unsweetened pineapple tidbits, drained
  • 1 (4 ounce) can canned diced green chiles, chopped

  • 14 cup golden raisin
  • 12 teaspoon chili powder
  • 14 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 14 cup toasted slivered almonds


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine chili, pineapple, chilies, cream cheese, raisins, chili powder and cinnamon; mix well. Heat until cream cheese melts, stirring continuously. Mix in almonds.
