I don't eat much beef, but I bought some ground meet that I wanted to find an interesting recipe for. This recipe was quick and delicious. I served the picadillo in tortillas with the sliced hardboiled eggs on top, and a dollop of fat free sour cream. I didn't have golden raisins, so I used regular raisins. I also substituted an 8oz can of tomato sauce for the paste and water.

Quick, easy and delicious. It's a great combination of ingredients, we love it~! the only change I make - instead of tomato paste and water, I use one 8-oz can of tomato sauce.

this was very easy...I didn't have green olives so I used black and I didn't have golden raisins so I did use the darker ones...I have never had picadillo before so I don't know what to compare it to but this was very good and I will make it again (next time using the green olives). I ended up serving it with corn chips because I didn't have tortilla shells. Still I thought it was very good...

Delicious, and very easy! This was good in tortillas for a quick meal but would also be a great empanada filling with the addition of hardboiled egg and olives. Will make this again.
