A wonderful flavorful, savory Mexican dish. I use it to make burritos, eat plain with tortillas, on tostadas, whatever.

Very taste. We all liked our enchiladas made with this very much.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the pork and beef into strips about 1/8 inch thick by 1/2 inch wide, trimming away excess fat.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  3. Add enough meat to cover the bottom of the pot.
  4. Cook until browned, about 4 minutes.
  5. Transfer to a bowl, and continue with another batch of raw meat until all is cooked.
  6. Return all of the meat to the pot and add all the remaining ingredients.
  7. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 1 1/2 hours (or bake covered in a 400°F oven for 1/2 hours).
  8. Serve rolled in warmed tortillas, with sour cream and salsa.
