Expert Tips

Picadillo, the Mexican version of hash, is great to have on standby when you need an easy no-prep meal. Place 2 cups Picadillo with Apples and Almonds in a tightly covered container. Cover and refrigerate up to 4 days or freeze up to 4 months. To thaw, place the container in the refrigerator for about 8 hours. Use it to fill taco shells, or flour or corn tortillas.
