Vegetarian Picadillo RecipeTagged in Vegetarian
In a large skillet, heat Achiote oil over medium to high heat.
Add onion, green pepper, garlic and cayenne pepper.
Saute 5 minutes until onions are softened.
Add tomatoes & cumin, cover and reduce heat to medium-low.
Simmer for 15 min, then add capers and simmer 5 more minutes.
(I add capers immediately before serving to preserve their flavor).
While picadillo sauce is simmering, prepare yellow rice and beans.
Serve with black beans and rice; divide the plate in half with a stripe of yellow
rice, placing the black beans and picadillo sauce on either side. This presents the dish
in a colorful fashion. Sauce also freezes well.
*Achiote oil is made by heating 1/2 cup Annato seeds in 1 cup vegetable oil. Boil until
oil is deep bright orange. Strain seeds from oil.
