Cuban Picadillo from SkinnyTaste

So I am back on the Weight Watchers trail.  Not so much to lose weight this time, but just to be more mindful of my portions and eating habits.  This site was recommended to me  So far I am really impressed.  This recipe was so good I scarfed it down and then ran to my computer so that I could put it here on the old blog so as never to lose it.
