Tips for the preparation of picadillo
- If you wish, you can incorporate one or two tablespoons of chipotle chili at the moment of liquefying the ingredients for the sauce or collection. This will give a taste a little more spicy to the preparation, but also more sweet and very tasty.
- It is not mandatory to peel the potatoes. I do not do it all the time, and the skin of this vegetable represents an additional contribution of fiber. But if you decide to leave the skin of the potatoes, it is important that you wash them very, very well.
- For a more spicy picadillo, you can add one or two serrano peppers to the preparation. Wash them well, remove the seeds, the head and the vein, and cut them into very small pieces. Add them to the beef when mixed with the peas and the stew.
- For a thicker or more tomato-flavored hash, you can add 4 tablespoons of tomato puree to the beef, at the time of mixing it with the peas and the caldillo.
