Yep, food police not allowed..."my kitchen, my rules".

Sounds like there are many 'authentic' versions of picadillo. Since its roots are originally Spanish, not just Cuban, it took on ingredients and flavors from different cultures. It's originally just a way to stretch and flavor chopped meat. Everything else is optional.

Medtran, what type of sherry? Sherry could add an additional sweetness to the dish.
c.
Medium dry, full bodied, nothing special, just something you can pick up at a grocery that carries a fairly extensive wine selection if you don't feel like going to the liquor store.

I ask because sherry runs the gamut from very dry to cream sherry.

None taken. Just my personal experience. Go ahead and make sloppy Joe's if you want.

Calling them sloppy joes because they don't contain capers is childish.

+1. And sloppy Joes don't have wine, olives or raisins. It's a silly thing to say.

I should have mentioned this before, but this is the salad recipe I served with the Picadillo. It was the perfect side for it, along with sliced avocado.

This sounds good Kay, thanks for the link to the recipe. I'll make this as is, but will have to halve the recipe since it's just me here. On second thought, I imagine it would freeze well.

The side salad sounds delish, too!

I would guess it will freeze well without potatoes Cheryl, but you're right, it makes a lot! It's good for breakfast too with poached or fried eggs on top.
