Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. In a large, heavy pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Dump onions, garlic, bell pepper and seasonings into heated oil.
  2. When the bell pepper starts to discolor, add the ground beef, stirring to break up large pieces. Brown evenly, cooking for about 7 minutes.
  3. As meat is browning, add potato, beef broth and diced tomatoes.
  4. Simmer until picadillo thickens, stirring occasionally.
  5. Serve hot with Spanish (Mexican) rice and tortilla.
