    Nancy's Pantry's Note:

    Pinto benas replace the traditional ground beef in this vibrant Mexican dish that is at once sweet, spicy, hot and piquant. Recipe is from my Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker cookbook.

      At least once a week I slow cook the dinner and once a week we are doing "meatless" meals so this was a good new recipe to find. I was a little unclear how to serve it though... it was more of a skillet meal with the rice stirred in and beef picadillo would be served with tortillas and sides. I didn't have any tortillas on hand and we were in a hurry so I think I served it as a one pot meal.
      I did have to make some substitutions due to what I had on hand. No green chiles and just a small amount of sweet pepper so I also added some carrots in step 1. I added some jalepeno tabasco sauce but never did quite make it to "spicy". That was for the best though since my family has a low spice tolerance! My apples were on the small side so I added 2 and didn't regret it. I used chicken stock and brown rice. The black olives and raisins were omitted. Hubby said he would like the olives and I was thinking of only adding the raisins next time. Rather than black olives, I think green ones or some capers would be a nice touch. The almonds do add to the dish but I think I may sprinkle them on top of each serving. DD doesn't like them.
