This has a different taste from other Picadillo recipes posted; sweet chili sauce to balance the spiciness and saltiness. The combo of sweet-spicy-salty makes a tasty Picadillo meal.

This is a good recipe! I forgot to buy the beef stock so had to add water but it was still very flavorful. Add about 15 olives; only change I will make next time is cut the olives in half, getting a whole olive in one bite was a bit salty. Served with warm tortillas. Made for Fall 2009 PAC.
