      This was enjoyable, but it looked and tasted Asian, not Southwestern. We could not detect the taste of the mild green chiles; it might seem more Southwestern if chopped jalapeno peppers or chipotle peppers were used; if crispy tortilla chips were substituted for bamboo shoots; if ground cumin and red pepper flakes were added and the soy sauce cut back. If Southwestern was pulled from the recipe title, I would say that the meat produced a nice fond which carried over, and the sauce thickened nicely. More color could be added by using one red bell pepper and one green bell pepper. Thanks for posting, loof. Made for Photo Tag.

      Made for Newest Zaar Tag 2008. The flavor of this was good, but I was expecting more of a southwest flair - it still tasted quite a bit like a regular stir fry. Didn't have celery so I subbed an 8 oz can of water chestnuts. I will make this again because it's very easy, it fed my hungry family and we even had leftovers! Thanks for posting this loof!
