Picadillo is a ground beef dish that is served with rice and beans in most Latin households. It can also be used as a ground beef filling for other dishes.

"Super easy and delicious! It was perfect over rice and inside a whole wheat tortilla. Only change I made was I left out the capers for my toddler, and added 1/2 tsp of chilling powder for myself."
