The recipe produces an authentic South of the Border Carne Guisada. This is one of my favorite Mexican dishes. I added 2 cubed potatoes and added them as I browned the meat, cooked it about ten minutes and added the rest of the ingredients and simmered for 20 minutes. Instead of using plain tomatoes, I added two cans of diced tomatoes (10 ounces)with green chiles. Now I guess I'll have to make homemade flour tortillas to go with this.

This was really good and easy, too. I think I'll add a can of Rotel next time. I put Rotel in nearly everything to zip it up!!!

Excellent recipe! One of my family's favorites. I also use Rotel instead of regular canned tomatoes to give it a little zip.
