When you crave something different but not too exotic for dinner, try picadillo! Brightened with green olives and capers, mellowed with currants, and warmed with cumin and cinnamon, this ground beef dish is sure to please young and old alike with its mild salty-sweet flavors. We piled it into lettuce leaves with rice and fresh pico de gallo for the perfect summertime meal.
I’m guest posting again at The Nourishing Gourmet, and that was a sneak peek. I hope you’ll hop over and check out Cuban Picadillo Lettuce Wraps, my latest recipe that’s perfect for a weeknight family dinner. We LOVE it chez Alison.
And now, my husband and I are off to Santa Fe for a little two-night babymoon. October’s coming fast (though most days I’d say not fast enough!), and we are ready to relish this oasis of kid free time.
Hope you have a great week too! I’ll be back next week with another installment of the prioritizing food dollars series.
