Picadillo
---------
1/2 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons oil
1 pound ground beef
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon fresh Mexican oregano leaves
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 to 1 cup tomato paste
2 chipotles in adobo sauce
3 to 6 tablespoons golden raisins
3 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted
1/2 cup pimento stuffed green olives, sliced
salt

In a large skillet, saute the onion, garlic and bay leaves in oil over
moderate heat, stirring, until the onion is softened. Add the beef, and
continue to cook until the beef is no longer pink; breaking up any lumps
with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in oregano, cloves,
and cinnamon. Pour out any excess fat and stir in the tomato paste until
thoroughly incorporated. Add chipotles, raisins, almonds, and olives; salt
to taste. Continue until everything is heated.
