Crock Pot Picadillo
Picadillo, a flavorful Cuban dish made with ground beef and a sauce made from simmering tomatoes, green olives, bell peppers, cumin, and spices is one of my family's favorite weeknight meals.

1 cup diced red bell peppers

I love her recipes. We are going to be eating a lot of them as Bossman HAS to lose weight. His sugar is borderline now. I've been telling him, but he wouldn't listen! Now its official since the Doc said so. Of course eating two helpings isn't going to help!
I couldn't find the alcaparrado so I just used green olives with pimentos and mixed in capers. I'm going to use the leftovers in a couple of days for stuffed red peppers!
