‘ Picadillo Con Papas’

There are few things more delicious than Authentic Mexican  Food, such as  ‘Picadillo Con Papa” (Authentic Mexican beef  stew.)  There is nothing more autahentic  than when it is cooked using a “Casuela” (Mexican dish.) And of course, we can’t  forget that “Authentic Mexican Seasoning.”

·2 pounds lean ground beef
·3 small potatoes-with or without skin, cut into ¼ or ½    inch cubes
·1 can tomatoes sauce -8 oz can
·1 med diced tomatoe
·1/2 small clean sliced bell pepper
·1/2 small sliced or finely diced onion-preferably white,
·1/4 cup cilantro, coursed or chopped
·1 teaspoon  ‘authentic mexican seasoning’

1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
·1 ½ cups to 2 cups water

· Put the ground beef in a skillet at medium heat  turning occasionally while seasoning it with salt and pepper.
·When beef is browned ·Add ½  can tomatoes sauce,
1 cup of warm water, 1 1/2  teaspoons of ‘”Authentic Mexican Seasoning,* potatoes, bell pepper and onions,
·If you desire a spicy dish, add two uncut Serrano peppers with the stem (caution: do not break serrano peppers in your skillet)
·Cover with lid and simmer for 30 minutes stirring occasionally until potatoes are tender,
*After cooking for 30 minutes add cilantro, and if desired, add additional tomatoe sauce and water for a thicker or lighter broth.
*Turn off and let sit for 20 minutes before serving.

Compliment with Authentic Mexican tortillas, rice, beans and salsa.

*If you do not have some of that “Authentic Mexican seasoning” or if you would like to have a beautiful “Casuela,”I would be more than happy to send them to you at a special price.”       Enjoy!

    I made this recipe for my family for dinner tonight and it was delicious! I also made AetnaJo’s homemade flour tortillas recipe to go with it. Yummy!
    Living in Canada, it is hard to get good authentic Mexican food and utensils. AetnaJo is a great source. I used my new tortilla press I got from her and my brand new tortilla warmer. It sure made making the tortillas much easier than rolling and the warmer really kept the tortillas surprisingly warm for a long while.
    Thanks for the great recipes!

    Thank you so much. I’m glad you enjoyed the recipes. I’ve heard it said “the way to a person’s heart is their stomach,” so may you win many hearts. It really does make a difference when you have the neecessary or ‘authentic Mexican kithenware.’ I’m more than happy to send what ever you need or want from Mexico. Just let me know and I’ll have it at your front doorstep in no time.
    Enjoy, AetnaJo

  9. AetnaJo Says:

    There are many Mexican seasonings. The cumin seed, garlic, salt, pepper & paprika are fine but there are authentic Mexican seasonings such as “Knorr” brand seasonings. Go to http://mexgrocer.com and click on ‘ingredients’. Good luck & enjoy!
