This is very good but I have a variation. Instead of using ground beef, I buy (or make myself), shaved steak. To make yourself, buy an inexpensive steak. Chill it in a freezer until it is stiff (about an hour). Slice it into thin strips. Finally, pound the strops with a kitchen mallet so that they are paper thin.

This is a wonderful recipe. I've made it twice so far. Both times the ingredients I used were a little different, depending on what I had on hand. Using spicier or milder peppers, fresh tomatoes or Rotel, even adding some cilantro with the tomatoes, it was delicious each way. We ate this on tortillas. Thank you for sharing.

This is a great recipe! I have made it half a dozen times and have no complaints at all from the family. I reduce the amount of peppers depending on the heat so everyone can eat it. Also I add a tablespoon of cumin and a tsp of ketchup. Coupled with the beef broth and the tomatoes (roma), it makes a very nice sauce that goes well with rice.

Pretty good. Could use as a base for other recipes also. I may use leftovers for Chili or maybe enchiladas.
