Mexican Picadillo

Mexican Picadillo. This quick and easy dinner recipe comes together with minimal ingredients. Ground beef and potatoes are simmered in a tomato sauce. Serve this dish up with some rice and fresh flour tortillas for a complete meal.

A classic, nostalgia inducing meal with ground beef and potatoes. This is one of those dishes that is so easy to customize, and everyone has their own way of making it. It’s pure comfort food. This recipe is a basic version. With some ideas of ways you can easily customize it to make it just right for you and your family.


Swap the tomato sauce for 4 Roma tomatoes blended or finely diced.

Add in peas and carrots, or other vegetable of choice.

Use beef bouillon instead of beef broth.

Use jalapeno or other chili instead of bell pepper for more heat.

Add more broth/tomato sauce to make this more of a stew.
