Sometimes 30 minutes is all you need to bring a delicious meal to the table. Picadillo is a tasty dish made with ground beef, tomatillos, onions, chiles, salt and pepper. It's eaten in tacos, with tostadas or used as a filling to stuff chiles or volovanes, just to name a few examples. The recipe I'm sharing with you today is a variation of a traditional picadillo. The combination of sweet flavors that the apple, raisins and carrot add, with the more acidic flavors of tomatillo and olives, give this particular dish more flavor dimension. It's a delicacy, and it's ready in just one half hour. MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • Prepare the beef mix ahead of time to really infuse the meat with all the flavors.
  • I used gala apples in this recipe, but if you prefer a firmer, tarter apple, use Granny Smith.
