AUTHENTIC SPANISH PICADILLO

AUTHENTIC SPANISH PICADILLO Picadillo is a traditional dish in Spain.  Its name originates from the Spanish word “picar” which means “to mince” which explains the presence of minced beef.  It can also be used as stuffing for bell peppers, tacos, burritos, enchiladas, and empanadas.
