I previously distributed this Picadillo with potatoes in April 2015, and I am re-presenting it on incorporate one more flavorful adaptation of the recipe.

A couple of years prior, I shared my photograph of picadillo with chayote on KP’s Facebook page, and one peruser remarked, “Gracious what a fascinating twist on picadillo. I’ve never had it like this.” Then seven days later, I shared my giniling na baboy recipe, and another peruser remarked, “We call this picadillo at home.”

From additional readings, I discovered that our nearby picadillo without a doubt has two sorts. One is the “soupy” form with chayote or potatoes (presented above), and the other is a hash-like stew like giniling na baka or arroz a la cubana.
