15 Min

You've got no reason to feel bad after eating our Guilt-Free Picadillo. Made with lean ground beef, you could even enjoy it the next day, too!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pound 95-96% lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 (14-1/2-ounce) can whole tomatoes, undrained, broken up
  • 1/4 cup chopped pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder*
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder*
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon*
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef and onion over medium heat, until browned and no pink remains in the meat.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients; mix well. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, until the mixture is heated through. Serve immediately.



  • To make this a gluten-free recipe, use raisins that have not been dusted with wheat flour to prevent sticking, and seasonings with no added starch from a gluten-containing source.
  • To keep the carbs low, simply serve this scooped onto a leaf of Bibb or romaine lettuce.

You can absolutely leave out the raisins if you would prefer the dish without them!
