A note about serious food allergies

Picadillo is a classic dish in Latin American and the Philippines, usually a ground meat (usually a ground beef) with tomatoes, raisins, and olives, among other things. We omitted the raisins, but kept the olives, switched up the ground beef to ground pork, and used the picadillo to fill tender poblano peppers. We hope you "pick" this picadillo classic.

  1. 1

    Start the Peppers

    Stem poblano peppers, halve lengthwise, and remove seeds. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping. Place peppers on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Massage oil, salt, and pepper into peppers. Adjust peppers so cut side up. Roast in hot oven until peppers are almost tender, 8-10 minutes. While peppers roast, prepare remaining ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Cut potatoes into ½"pieces. Mince olives. Peel and mince shallot.

  3. 3

    Start the Filling

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, potatoes, and a pinch of salt to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly golden, 4-5 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Filling

    Add ground pork and shallot to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, seasoning blend, wine, olives, ¼ tsp. salt and red pepper flakes (to taste). Then stir occasionally until slightly thickened, 1-3 minutes. Remove from burner.
