M.A. Kitchen

"Picadillo" comes from the Spanish word "picar", which means minced. There's nothing more comforting than Mexican picadillo, a hearty stew made with meat and potatoes, chilis, and tomato sauce.

Ingredients needed:

- 1 ½ lb ground beef - 1 ½ cup green chilies  - 2 medium tomatoes - 1 large onion - 1 lb potatoes - 3 Tbsp olive oil - 2 garlic cloves - ½ tsp cumin - 1 tsp pepper - salt

Step 1: Boil the tomatoes to soften skin. Peel them and place into a blender with garlic, cumin, pepper and cup of water. Blend until you get a light sauce.

Step 2: In a sauté pan heat the oil over medium heat. Add onions and chilies

Step 3: Add the ground meat and break it with the back of a spoon cooking for 5 minutes or until changes its color.

Step 4: Pour in the tomato sauce and mix. Add water or beef stock enough to slightly cover the meat. Season with salt.

Step 5: Add potatoes to the pan, mix, and cover again. Cook until tender 

A warm and hearty dish to enjoy!
