Mexican Picadillo

Updated: Jun 27, 2022

We all love the Cuban style Picadillo, but have you tried the Mexican style?

Recipe by:


1 lb ground beef

½ cup onion, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced

2 cups potato, peeled and diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

8 ounces tomato sauce*

1½ cup beef broth

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp ground black pepper

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

1 bay leaf

*you can add peas or carrots too!


Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add ground beef. Cook over medium heat while breaking up the meat. Cook until mostly browned, drain grease and return to heat.

Add in diced onion, green bell pepper and potatoes. Continue to cook over medium heat until onion and peppers are softened. Add garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds.

Pour in tomato sauce and beef broth. Add in seasonings: salt, pepper, cumin, and coriander. Stir to combine. Add bay leaf.

Bring mixture to a simmer, cover and let cook for 10 minutes.

Remove lid, stir, and continue cooking with the lid off for an additional 10 minutes or until potatoes are softened and most of the liquid is gone.

Serve warm with flour tortillas and rice.
