Laura's Lean Beef Picadillo Bowls


  • 1 lb Laura's Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 can canned petite diced tomatoes (mostly drained)
  • 2 pkg Sazon cilantro y achiote seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp fresh garlic (ground)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup sliced green olives
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups quick cooking brown rice
  • 1 cup black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • salt to taste


Add all of the ingredients (except raisins and olives) into a multicooker and stir together.  Turn the multicooker to high and allow to cook for 1 ½ hours.  Break the Laura's 92% Lean ground beef up with a spoon, then add the olives and raisins, and cook for 30 minutes more on high.

While the picadillo is simmering, make the brown rice.  Place the water in a medium saucepan and place over high heat.  Add 1 teaspoon of salt, then stir in the quick cooking brown rice.  Cook the rice for 10 minutes, then drain.

To serve the picadillo bowls, evenly distribute the brown rice among 4 bowls top with an even amount of black beans, corn, and picadillo.  Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve.
