    This looks great, I want to try it! Where would I get the meat at? I haven’t seen it around here anywhere.

      I get mine at Walmart, but most grocery stores should have it. All it is really is thin slices of beef.. usually chuck or tri-tip, but all shredded up for you. It is really good! :)

      I just made this dish tonight and I realy loved it. I just put the vegtables and meat over some roasted red pepper and basil quinoa and brown rice. For a even healthier alternative

    I love Mexican food and this looks awesome! Seems easy to make too, and not expensive at all. I am going to try this one this week.

      I usually buy a bag of mixed red, orange, and yellow mini peppers from my local grocer, but you can easily use the larger versions of bell peppers in those colors. I also added jalapeno peppers to this dish.

    I made this last night for dinner and we LOVED it! It was really inexpensive. I got the meat for $3.50, a packaged of the mix of peppers for $2 on sale, tortillas for $2, refried beans for $1.00 and rice on sale for $2 for a 3 pound bag (so now I can use the rice for other meals throughout the coming weeks)! So for $10.50 I was able to feed my family of 4 with leftovers for lunch for my boyfriend and I to take to work! Not to mention it was DELICIOUS! Thank you so much!

    I just made this and it is delicious. I have never used this cut of meat before. I was out of rosemary so I used oregano and a poblano instead of jalapeno because I am a spice wimp.

    I found Carne Picada sliced beef at Aldi for $3.89 a pound and used it today instead of more expensive flank steak in a Cuban dish called Ropa Vieja. After cooking for three hours on the stove with Adobo, Sazon, Sofrito, tomato sauce, onions, green bell peppers, garlic, sliced green stuffed olives, capers, and cilantro, the meat was so tender that it just fell apart and looked like it had been minced. I served it over yellow rice. Delicious!!! I’m going to start using it in place of flank steak and round steak in other recipes.
