I thought this was a nice foundation to picadillo but made some minor adjustments. First off, I scaled it back to a serving of 4. Once I saw the new measurements, I scaled back the cinnamon and cloves to 1/8 of a tsp. instead of the 1/4 tsp it called for. I knew it would be too much due to their overwhelming flavor. I left out the olives and capers mainly because I didn't have any on hand. I added some pure annatto seed, ground, about 1/4 tsp, and 1/4 tsp of Mexican oregano, and cumin. I scaled back the tomato sauce to 1 1/2 cups and added a half cup of beer. Beer is very typical in chicken and yellow rice so why not in picadillo. I served it over white rice and thought it turned out pretty good.
