Directions

Creole Sauce:

In a large saucepan, start with tomato sauce and water. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for about 30 minutes or until all the flavors have blended to your liking. You'll have extra sauce to use for other recipes!

This is a versatile sauce that can be used for use with rice and pasta dishes, eggs, meats, fish, or even as a dipping sauce.

Picadillo:

In a large pan, brown the beef first, drain, then put back into the pan. Add the creole sauce, and stir on medium to low heat until it simmers. Add remaining ingredients and simmer on low heat, stirring regularly, for about half an hour to 45 minutes. Serve with rice and black beans.
