Delicious! I added some potatoes, and up'd the chili powder....as well as some fresh cilantro. Also threw in a can for diced tomatoes. I used some hatch chilies as I had them in the freezer, and it was a great add! This is a great base, and you can do a lot with it! Thanks for a great recipe. Great served over rice, and made for a nice stew with toasted tortillas and eggs for breakfast! Yum!

Liked this recipe.I placed everything in the crockpot after browning.Was not able to use the jalapenos as I didn't have any but I am sure it would have given the recipe a kick.

this is amazing! My husband said it was like eating out at our favorite Mexican restaurant, and being able to eat from the expensive part of the menu. The only change we made was to use a couple dashes of dried diced jalapeno peppers instead of fresh, to cut down on the heat. Even our 4 yr old daughter loved it! We also served it with small flour tortillas to make tacos, or just dip in the yummy sauce, and an equally wonderful homemade spanish yellow rice. You have to try this!

I used the crockpot after browning. I also used, I think, Guajillo's b/c Jalapeno's would kill my stomach. Other than adding salt, which I never do with raw meat, I felt it needed some.. I used it over Cilantro Lime Rice Cilantro Lime Rice and I mix it w/Green Cilantro Rice Green Cilantro Rice (see notes why). Served with fresh, hot corn tortillas to scoop meat and plentiful sauce up with. Amber

This one WOWED us. Has a nice full-bodied, robust flavor and the most tender texture. Wrapped the beef and sauce up in warmed flour tortillas, burrito-style. Super delicious. Thanks--can't wait to make this one again.

Awesome stew! Making it as I write and the spoon sampling I'm tasting is great. I did substitute 1/2 cup canned petite dice tomatoes for tomatoe paste,and I used beef bouillion instead of beef stock . I'm cooking it slowly on the top of the stove, seems to be doing just fine. I've been looking for a mexican stew for a long time that is easy and taste good, and I've just found it. Making homemade mexican rice to put it over. Bon Apetite All!

Really excellent recipe. I made this in the crock pot for a cook itself version. I browned the meat the night before (without flour - low carb) and assembled it in the crock. The next morning I put it on low. Delicious soup, stew and fajita meat!
