Tex-Mex style beef stew. Great all by itself, with rice, tortillas and sliced avocados. Perfect over the top of cheese enchiladas. Use leftovers over nachos. You can added Jalapenos or other chilis if you want more kick, but the rotell tomatoes add a little kick already. Serve with some sour cream to cut the heat.

I made this dish with some Mexican rice. My husband and I loved it. It was so easy to make and I am not very good in the kitchen.
