Easy Holiday Recipe: Cuban Picadillo

The holidays are here and I am super excited. I love hosting guests in our home and shop ahead to make sure I have everything on hand to make easy holiday recipes to feed a crowd. One of my favorite holiday recipes to make for guests is a classic Cuban Picadillo. 

Picadillo is a rich, tomato-based ground beef dish that is easy to make and can feed a crowd. When you make tomato-based dishes like picadillo for guests, I do suggest you have some Nexium® 24HR on hand to help treat heartburn. I keep it on hand for my dad, he loves picadillo, but suffers form heartburn. With Nexium, I can let him enjoy his favorite Cuban food often! Just one pill a day provides all -day and all-night relief from frequent heartburn. No one wants guests to feel uncomfortable so being prepared is always key to hosting!

Back to the picadillo recipe:

Cuban Picadillo
Cook Time: 25-30 minutes
Serves 6

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, diced
1 carrot, peeled and diced
2 tbsp of green pitted salad olives
1/2 cup white dry cooking wine
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 medium-sized potato, peeled and cut into small pieces

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add olive oil, onions and garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes.

Add carrots and olives.

Add tomato paste and stir together.

Add ground beef, salt, pepper, oregano, cumin and combine. 

Add cooking wine and cook for about 5 minutes.

Add your potatoes, lower heat to medium and cover pot. 

Cook for another 20 minutes or until potatoes have softened.

VOILA! Super yummy and easy to make picadillo. Picadillo is awesome for a quick dinner or for a holiday party. 

Picadillo is also very versatile. Once I make it, I service it with white rice and beans. I always make enough for leftovers which can then be used in empanadas, burritos or in a sandwich!!
