Picadillo is a quick and easy Cuban dish that traditionally uses ground beef, raisins, onions, olives, and tomatoes. And here’s what I love about it…you can vary this however you want or use what you have on hand.
You can use another ground protein source such as ground turkey or chicken, or even tofu, depending on your taste and what you have around. I have 2 photos, one using ground beef, and another using ground chicken. Whatever you choose, this recipe is flexible enough to withstand ingredient alterations, if you get my drift. Out of cilantro? It will still taste delicious.
Picadillo goes great in tacos, wraps, sandwich rolls, on top of cauliflower rice, roasted veggies, or by itself with a spoonful of yogurt on top and a bed of lettuce or veggies below. Totally up to you! So here’s another quick and easy recipe for your repertoire. Enjoy!
