Feb 9: Mexican; Cuban Picadillo


The Foodies had an overnight guest with whom we brunched at La Fiesta, our local Mexican. Foodie Philip had Heuvos Rancheros while Foodie Greg had Chilaquiles. Our friend paid for brunch.


After our recent success with the Cuban Roast Pork, we decided to try Cuban Picadillo as we’re always looking for ways to use Ground Beef.

  • We only used one pound of Ground Beef for $8.25 or $2.06 per serve
  • White Wine adds 25c per serve
  • Tomato Paste is 89c and we used half, or 12c per serve
  • Fire Roasted Tomatoes are $1.69 or 43c per serve
  • Raisins cost 58c or 15c per serve
  • The Bell Pepper was 99c or 25c per serve
  • The Potato Medley was $3.49 and we used half, or 43c per serve
  • The olives come in a $4.49 jar, and we used half, or 56c per serve
  • Add 50c per serve for onion, garlic, oil and seasoning.

This turned out to be surprisingly good: way better than we expected. It had a great depth of flavor. We will probably drop the potato next time and serve with Rice, but otherwise a great meal for $4.75 per serve.
