1 lb (454 g) lean ground beef
2 medium potatoes cubed (275 g)
1 medium squash or zucchini chopped (175 g)
half of a small bell pepper diced (65 g)
half of a medium carrot diced (50 g)
3 cloves garlic minced (13 g)
1 to 1 1/2 cups (115 g) fresh sweet corn kernels
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp paprika
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/4 cups (295. 5 ml) low sodium beef broth
1/3 cup (79 ml) tomato puree or sauce

- In a preheated large pan or skillet add 2 Tbsp cooking oil and chopped onions
- Sauté onions until softened and translucent using a medium heat
- Now add cubed potatoes and died carrot, a pinch of salt and continue to sauté for 3 to 5 minutes
- Next add diced bell pepper, minced garlic, fresh corn kernels and continue to sauté for 2 minutes
- Create a space in the center of the skillet and add ground beef, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, pepper to taste and brown meat well combining with the vegetables while cooking
- Once the meat is cooked, add low sodium beef broth, tomato puree and combine well
- Bring to a simmer, cover skillet or pan with a lid, lower the heat and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are cooked through
- Once picadillo is cooked you can serve as is
- For a less soupy picadillo, after 25 minutes of cook time, remove lid and continue cooking for an additional 15 minutes to reduce liquid in pan. This method works great if using picadillo for tacos
- This recipe serves 4 to 6 servings or can make 8 to 10 bean and picadillo tacos

When I make my picadillo, I always make it different ways too depending on who is going to eat it. Some people like it a little soupy, some dry. What I didn't think about doing is adding the different veggies. What a good way to add in what you have in the fridge and not waste any. My 1st MIL used to make hers like a soup. She was from SLP Mexico. But she also made a drier one with carrots and potatoes and would make an Azteca pie or enchiladas with it. She would dip tortillas in enchilada sauce and layer them with the picadillo and sour cream between each layer. And then she would make an even drier one and would stuff the turkey on Thanksgiving with it. Picadillo is so versatile!

Just wanted to say, I've been a subscriber for over a year and I've learned a lot from you. I'm a 55 yr old white dude, who's mother didn't believe in women's vs men's work and I've been cooking since childhood. I've always considered myself a good cook but you have helped me take it to another level. Thank You.

Shout out to my mother who's revolutionary thinking, especially for the 60's and 70's made me the well-rounded man I am today.

I love picadilio and have wanted to add the flavor of jalapeño without the heat so thanks for that! I need to add squash now that I’ve seen you do it, lol!
