Cook the beef and onions in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
Stir the beef mixture, stock, picante sauce, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin and raisins in a 6-quart slow cooker.
Cover and cook on LOW for 7 to 8 hours. Top the beef mixture with the almonds. Serve with the rice.
Smells sooo good!
To my knowledge I've never had picadillo so I don't have anything to compare it to. I tried this recipe because it had easy to find and on-hand pantry items. This is simmering in the slow cooker and I could not help but take a small taste this afternoon. My family is going to love it, and I'm glad I doubled the recipe. (However, I did not double the broth, I just added 1 cup more. Just enough liquid.) It's chilly and getting ready to sleet and ice. We can be snuggled in for a long weekend with yummy leftovers. I did think it would be a bit more spicy. You might want to add a punch if you like spicy. It still has plenty of flavor just as the recipe is written. We are having a tropical fruit salad as a side. Perfect pair!
