    TJW's Note:

    This is a great way to cook brisket. As always, you can add more chiles! This recipe came to me in an email, but the author's name was not listed. I would like to thank him for a great recipe nonetheless! I make it in the pressure cooker to save time, but it taste slightly better when slow cooked in the oven. Plus, the smell in the house is to die for!

      This is a great recipe. It is easy to make, and the flavor is amazing. It is especially good served with homemade tortillas. The one caution I would mention is to puree the garlic & chilies in a small amount of the liquid. I have found that it needs 4 hours to cook. Be sure to check the level of liquid after about 3 hours. The first time I made it, the pan went dry; last night I had to reduce the liquid on the stovetop because there was too much (I did increase it a little because my brisket was bigger). We will be making this frequently.

      Made this last night and I thought it was very good. However, SO, a latino, thought the subtle taste of the wine and vinegar weren't authentic so next time I'll omit them add 2 more New Mexico Chiles and water for the wine and vinegar amounts. You weren't kidding, the smell in the house when this was cooking is very good!!
