Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 each red and green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ habanero pepper, minced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-1/4 lb (625 g) lean ground beef
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) dried oregano (preferably Mexican)
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) ground cumin
  • 1 piece (2 inches/5 cm long) cinnamon stick

  • ½ cup (125 mL) dark raisins
  • 12 large pimiento-stuffed green olives, sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • Finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

  1. In a large, heavy frying pan, heat oil over medium heat and cook onion, bell peppers, habanero pepper and garlic, stirring, for a minute. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until vegetables are very soft, about 10 minutes.
  2. Raise heat to medium-high, add beef, breaking it up with a fork, and cook until it is no longer pink, about five minutes. Add oregano, cumin and cinnamon stick and cook, stirring, for one minute. Add sherry and cook, stirring, until almost all the liquid has evaporated, about two minutes.
  3. Add tomatoes and juice and cook, stirring, until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until mixture is slightly thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir in raisins, olives, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook until olives are heated through, about one minute.
  4. Transfer to a large, deep, heated serving platter. Sprinkle with eggs and parsley. Serve hot.
