This picadillo filling can be used in different ways other than for burritos, which we called for here—you can serve it with rice and beans for a satisfying meal, or as a hearty topping for nachos. It's got all the good stuff that you and your guests will fawn over: pork tenderloin that's flavored with cumin and cinnamon, softened onions and garlic, salsa and raisins for color and texture, as well as crunchy toasted almonds, shredded Mexican cheese, and fresh cilantro. You'll love how well these seemingly diverse ingredients work with each other when they all come together in one dish.
