    Mme M's Note:

    Customarily served in bowls. If cooked longer, cooking away the liquid, this chile colorado makes ideal filling for burros and chimichangas. Use Red Enchilada Sauce - Tucson's El Charro and Garlic Puree - Tucson's El Charro. Chef Carlotta Flores, owner of El Charro Cafe.

      Very tasty: nice rich sauce, tender meat, and easy to make. The only change I made was to use a canned low sodium enchilade sauce (1 1/5 cups) and add diced unsalted tomatoes for the other 1 1/5 cup (plus cayenne!). Tastes GREAT leftover and reheated. I may try adding various types of chili's (anaheim, pastillo, chipotle) "one at a time" to the mix in the future just for variety. We served it with spinach, mexican rice, and fresh cut-up fruit. Thanks for a well written, easy to follow, DELICIOUS recipe!
