Picadillo Chili Dip

Cuban inspired, this hearty chili dip gets its signature flavor from its chilies, cinnamon spice, sweet pineapple and raisins - a great way to fit in vitamin-C rich fruit. Its name "picadillo" means "minced meat," a common ingredient in chili. Serve this flavorful dip with baked tortilla chips or crusty bread.
