I was recipe surfing when I came across this ground beef recipe .  I was intrigued because I had never heard of this recipe before.  I decided that I would  try to modify it.  Here is my lighter version of this Cuban Classic!

Picadillo (6 PP) per serving

Recipe serves 4


  • 1 lb 93% lean ground beef
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 chopped bell pepper
  • 1 4 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • parsley




brown beef; drain
saute onion, bell pepper and garlic  until translucent
add tomato sauce, wine, salt and red pepper flakes, parsley

lower heat and simmer for 20-30mins

serve with rice or on a bed of lettuce, or with warm corn tortillas or even lavosh bread, just remember to add the additional PP

I am enjoying experimenting with different recipes.  Including ones I have never attempted in the past.  In this recipe I actually threw in some leftover rice….


Thank you to all my followers.  It’s because of you that I am inspired.  Feel free to comment and provide any feedback or suggest a recipe for me to feature.

To keep you motivated the words of wisdom for this evening comes from one of my hubby’s favorite motivator’s.
