This was very good! I made a smaller batch, and omitted only the carrots, because I did not have any on hand. It made a nice, hearty, spicy, flavorful stew, and I appreciated that it uses beef, instead of pork. Served it with warm tortillas and butter, and it made for a lovely meal on a cold night!
