1/3 Photos of Chili Colorado
1 hrs 30 mins
Chili Colorado means chunks of BEEF in red sauce, NOT pork! Chunks of pork is carne adovado, shredded pork is carnitas. I've seen a couple other recipes here calling themselves colorado but containing pork and this is just plain wrong people. Furthermore, chili colorado is not a "mexican" version of american style chili... meaning it's not a thick, hearty type of chili with chunks of vegetables that can be seen or tasted. If you've ever had chili colorado in a real mexican restaurant, you know that it is simply chunks of beef in a red sauce and that's it. All the spices are ground. A note about chili powder: when you buy the spice labeled "chili powder" in the market be aware that it's not just chili powder, it's a mixture of chili powder, cumin, sugar, salt, etc. If you can, try to find pure chili powder made from new mexico or california chilis (I wouldn't use de Arbol chilis--too hot and wrong flavor). The label will point out what kind you're getting. Oh and one further note about reviews: I very much appreciate all the positive comments, but if you give me a bad review stating that you changed/added like four or five ingredients, then you've basically just made a whole new recipe based on mine, right? So do me a favor and post that new recipe yourself!
