Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

    Outstanding! I will go back to this often.

    The recipe doesn't specify draining the fat after cooking the beef, but you should- it is way too greasy otherwise. Maybe the fat muted the flavors, but I thought this was kind of bland for a picadillo.
