Picadillo With Sweet Potatoes

This picadillo with sweet potatoes is savory, sweet, and loaded with flavor. I make this once a week because it’s super easy to make and requires minimal ingredients.

Serve it with garlic buttery rice and fried plantains for a complete Cuban dinner meal.


– ground beef – sweet potatoes – onion – green bell pepper  – garlic cloves – tomato sauce – sazon – granulated garlic – cumin – oregano

Add the ground beef to a large skillet, break it up, and cook over medium-high heat until completely browned.

Stir in the onions and peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 20 seconds.

Stir in the remaining ingredients, cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender.

Season with Kosher salt and enjoy!

Tips and Recipe Variations

- If you use 80/20 ground beef, make sure to discard any excess oil so the picadillo doesn’t turn out greasy. - Season generously with Kosher salt right before serving.
