Ingredients

2 pounds lean ground beef

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 onion, chopped

1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

2 tablespoons minced garlic

2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce

2 cups water

1/2 cup red cooking wine

3 tablespoons hot sauce (such as Louisiana®)

1 (1.41 ounce) package sazon seasoning (such as Badia® Tropical®)

1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground bay leaf

3 ounces Spanish-style olives

1 teaspoon salt, or to taste

1 small butternut squash, peeled and cut into cubes

Steps

1Cook and stir ground beef in a large stockpot until browned, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain grease.

2Heat olive oil in small skillet over medium heat. Add onion, green bell pepper, and garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir into beef in the stockpot.

3Pour tomato sauce, water, cooking wine, and hot sauce into the stockpot. Stir in sazon seasoning, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, pepper, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer picadillo, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.

4Split olives in half with your fingers and stir into the picadillo. Add squash. Simmer until liquid reduces but picadillo is not dry, 45 to 60 minutes. Season with salt.
