Specialty Recipe

Picadillo-Party Recipe

4 kilos of ground meat
6 green peppers
3 red peppers
10 carrots
3 onions
6 serrano chilis and some serrano chili paste (see recipe below)
Three 28-ounce stewed tomatoes
1/2 kilo raisins
2 cups green olives
2 cans black olives

Cook meat and sauce separately.

Brown meat. Add pepper but no salt. Olives will make the meat salty.

For the sauce, start out by sauteing the onion. Put stewed tomatoes in blender and puree very slightly. Add to onion. Add chopped carrots (chop in small quarter pieces) and chopped serranos - very fine. After carrots cook awhile, add chopped green and red peppers. Cook for a few minutes until the peppers are tender.

Add sauce to meat. Stir in green olives. Taste for spiciness and add about a teaspoon (or more) of serrano paste (see recipe below) for desired hotness. Let sauce cook for awhile. Add raisins. After raisins get plump, add black olives. Serve with corn and flour tortillas and beans.

Serrano Chili Paste

20 to 25 serrano chilis (whole, washed with stem cut off)
1 Tablespoon and 1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 cups white vinegar

Blend chilis, salt, olive oil and vinegar together. Makes a very hot sauce! Good to use with meat, fish, soups, or to add some picante spiciness.
