    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    I had the opportunity to live near Mexico. I learned to cook many dishes from friends. This is just one type of Puchero. The flavors are more intense if you refrigerate,then heat.Two methods of cooking. For large groups the slow method. For small groups, cut in half or thirds and put all in a pressure cooker. Dinner in less than an hour for fast method.
