What's it called?Yes, that is exactly what my almost 4 year old said to me when I told him what I was making for dinner last night. “Picadillo”, I said again. “Pica who?” What can I say? His timing is pretty good. Still, he managed to eat a good portion of this Spanish dish at dinner later that night. It really is quite good. A perfect cool weather one-pot wonder if you will. Since we have yet to have a 90 degree day this summer it went down well. I have to say, it is not vegetarian friendly. It is all meat baby. A little something about this recipe. I am publishing it verbatim. This is how it came to me- this is a seperate topic for another post. I will make notes as I go.


1 lb. each chicken breasts, italian sausage, ground beef (cut chicken and sausage into bite sized pieces)

1/2 c olive oil

4 sliced onions

3 cloves garlic (minced)

1 can tomatoes (I used a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes)

1 can tomato paste, large

2 green peppers, diced

1 can green chilies, small

1 bottle green olives, small

3/4 c raisins

1 tsp worcestershire sauce

4 tbsp Pickapeppa Sauce

bay leaf, salt, pepper, basil, oregano ( I did these all to taste except I used 2 bay leaves)

1) Brown meat in olive oil. (Do this in batches to that everything gets a good sear)

2) Add everything else in dutch oven with meat. Simmer for 30 minutes

3) Serve over saffroned rice.
