Recipe

This Vegetarian Picadillo has all the flavors of a traditional picadillo without the meat. Perfect for tacos, rice bowls, and sandwiches.

While many people think of Picadillo as a Cuban dish, their is also a delicious Mexican version of picadillo made with chipotle peppers, tomato sauce, potatoes, and carrots. Normally it calls for ground beef, but vegetarian crumbles made the perfect substitute for a meatless version. You could also use lentils, black beans, or even finely chopped tempeh. Everything is simmered together until you get a rich, spicy dish that will quickly become a family favorite.
