    Jubal Harshaw's Note:

    I ate this stew with a mountain guide named Chi Chi on my way to explore some ruins in the Andes. I was sworn to secrecy as to exactly where these ruins were, but you can surmise from this recipe that it was near a place that had cheap Mexican beer and fresh cilantro. To make this goat stew, simply replace the word 'lamb' with 'goat' when you are making it.
