CXPC0382.JPG

This Latin-American inspired dish has many, many different versions depending on where it’s being made and who’s cooking it! Some versions call for sausage, some add tomatoes and herbs but no potatoes, some add olives and raisins - there are so many possibilities! Feel free to adjust to your taste and use what you have on hand.

Serve with rice, or cauliflower rice, or with tortillas - you can’t go wrong.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb Ground Beef

  • 1 Cup Potato, Cubed (about 1 large or 2 small potatoes)

  • 1 Carrot, Sliced

  • 1/4 Onion, Chopped

  • 1 Tbsp. Paprika

  • 1 Tbsp. Cumin

  • 1 Tbsp. Garlic Powder

  • 1 Tbsp. Chili Powder

  • Salt & Pepper

  • 2 Tbsp. Canola Oil

  • 1/4 c. water or broth

Process:

  1. Prepare Vegetables

  2. Add Canola Oil to a large skillet over high heat

  3. Add Onion and cook for five minutes - stirring, until the onions are translucent and starting to brown at the edges

  4. Add Ground beef and spices; stir often to allow for beef to break down and brown evenly

  6. Season to taste and serve while hot!
