“I got the idea for this picadillo from my Cuban friend Cecilia.” Grace Parisi says. “It’s a rich and spicy, versatile Latin American dish that combines ground beef with tomatoes and piquant ingredients, like olives and capers. Raisins are added for a touch of sweetness.” It’s excellent served over rice or as a topping for hotdogs. More Cuban Recipes
