Caldillo -- South of the Border Stew

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Chef Michael Callahan

This is a nice stew; make it as spicy as you like by adding or reducing the amounts of chili peppers. I happen to be fond of Ancho Chili Peppers. Please feel free to substitute your own favorites! Serve with your choice of tortillas

Definitely easy, and enjoyed the taste of the broth but felt that the wonderful flavor of the broth did not permeate the meat as much as we would have liked. The time for simmering the meat needs to be written into the recipe inside step 3. Thanks for sharing Chef Michael Callahan. Made for Spring PAC 2010 baby.
