Growing up in Texas where cattle is raised, ground beef is the most affordable cut of meat. My family learned many different ways to stretch out our meal. This recipe is a wonderful blend of ground beef, onions, and potatoes.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
We never had a taco like these Picadillo ones before and they're fantastic. In doing research, we learned there are different versions of Picadillo, and this version made with ground beef, tomatoes, and potatoes is similar to a northern Mexican one. Seasonings include cumin, coriander, garlic, and a bay leaf which add a lot of flavor to the ground beef. This is a very economical meal and a great twist for taco night. We served ours with cheese and a little taco sauce. It was delicious.
In a medium heated skillet add olive oil, onions, and garlic. Saute until slightly translucent. Add ground meat. Cook until ground meat is done.
Add beef stock, Rotel, and potatoes. Turn heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
Add coriander, cumin, garlic powder, and bay leaf. Cook for 10 mins or when the potatoes are completely tender, not mushy. Remove bay leaf.
Warm up tortilla, add filling, and serve.
