30 Days of Cooking Light–Day 18. Healthy Picadillo
What I don’t love is the grease and heaviness that usually accompanies it. This version is light, sweet and savory, and bursting with fresh veggies. You can find the recipe here.
If you aren’t familiar with Picadillo, it’s a latin american dish that is made from ground beef, onions, bell peppers, green olives, and sometimes potato. Depending on the area of origin and what is available. It’s a great way to stretch protein portions and makes awesome filling for corn tortillas. This recipe comes together quickly and looks impressive. We served it with roasted potatoes with olive oil and sea salt and a green veggie. It’s equally good over rice or tucked inside of a tortilla.
Jeremy and I may have fought over the leftovers 🙂
