Picadillo Recipe

Watching an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives inspired me to take a stab at a Cuban dish, Picadillo. It is kind of a Spanish version of an Italian bolognese style sauce usually served over rice. This is another adaptation that was made with ingredients that were laying around the pantry.
