Picadilla is a Cuban style dish that’s seasoned with spices, raisins, and green olives. Because I avoid tomatoes, I used a tomatillo and green chili salsa instead. The flavors blended beautifully and added a little kick to the dish. Because I am gluten-free, I used paleo-style wraps, but you could use flour or corn tortillas. For those who are going low carb, place the seasoned beef on a bed of greens for a new twist on the traditional taco salad.
