Beef Picadillo Over Brown Rice is one of my favorite comfort foods. Picadillo is similar to hash made with ground beef and tomatoes. There are a lot of variations to this dish depending on where you’re from. I have seen people put raisins and olives in it, but I like to keep mine pretty simple. Just some potatoes (a must in my opinion), tomatoes, garlic, onion and some salt and pepper. It’s really all you need.
A few of the things I love about this recipe are:
- It’s so easy to make.
- It’s cheap.
- It’s versatile. I’ve made this recipe using ground turkey to lighten it up a little.
- And it reminds me of growing up with my grandmothers in the kitchen making Mexican food when I was little. The aroma takes me back to that time. It’s a beautiful thing.
And the Picadillo isn’t the only star in this recipe. The Brown Rice is pretty tasty too. I have a separate post all about this Easy Baked Brown Rice so be sure to check it out! I’ve also got a Picadillo Taco recipe you might also like.
