Picadillo, seasoned chopped beef, is a great favorite throughout Latin America and every country has its own version. This Dominican variation, called Picadillo Potato Pie, includes hard-boiled eggs, raisins, olives, capers and mashed potatoes. It is a winning combination. Although this recipe takes some time to prepare, it is worth the effort. For ease in preparation, the picadillo filling or potato part can be made a day ahead or earlier in the day and refrigerated.

INGREDIENTS

Step 1

Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add peppers, onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add ground beef; cook, stirring frequently, until no longer pink. Drain.

Step 2

Add tomato paste; stir to blend in. Stir in bouillon mixture, olives, capers and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Reduce heat to low; add raisins. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, for an additional 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Gently mix in chopped egg.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 375° F. Grease 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

Step 4

Boil potatoes in salted water until tender; drain well. Mash potatoes while hot until smooth. Add butter; alternately mix in evaporated milk and beaten eggs. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper; mix well.

Step 5

Place half of mashed potatoes in prepared baking dish. Spoon Picadillo over potatoes. Gently spread remaining mashed potatoes over Picadillo. Sprinkle with cheese.

Step 6

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until cheese is slightly browned. Serve hot.
