Picadillo is a saucy ground beef stew that is sorta like Sloppy Joe sauce. Next time I hope we have enough leftovers to roll up with cheese in tortillas, like the original Canadian Living recipe suggests.

2 lb lean ground beef
2 onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (156 ml) tomato paste
1 cup water
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp finely chopped fresh or pickled jalapeño pepper
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup sliced pimiento-stuffed green olives
1 sweet green pepper, sliced

In large non-stick skillet, sauté beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, 5 minutes. (I just used a little oil in a regular skillet.) Drain off fat. Transfer to slow-cooker.

Add remaining ingredients except for olives and green pepper to slow-cooker; cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or until thickened. Add olives and green pepper; cover and cook on high for 15 minutes. Serve over rice or potatoes.
