I loved this recipe (with modifications), although I was looking for a more traditional Cuban style picadillo. My mods: pearl onions sauteed and slighty mashed before adding yellow onions, garlic and peppers (adds a nice texture and color complement). The cinnamon was interesting, but I'd use less next time. Less clove, along with the addition of cumin and adobe seasoning gave it a more Cuban taste. I always liked the green olives when I ate picadillo in Miami, so I added half more than the recipe called for. Lastly, I used more hot (habanero) sauce than the posted recipe, and I also added red pepper flakes, and used apple cider vinegar. Next time, I think I'll add some coriander (like some others have suggested), and also use the traditional Cuban raisins, which I think will work well with the cinnamon and apple cider vinegar. Thanks for posting this delicious recipe.
