I found this in a cookbook my grandmother gave me for Christmas last year. (Texas Favorites: a Collection of Family Recipes vol. II) I had been searching for a good Carne Guisada recipe and oh man is this it. Of course I added a smidge to it, but this pleased everyone that came for dinner that night. I think it is better than most hole in the wall Mexican joints because it is full of flavor where theirs are usually bland. You can add a fresh chopped tomato and jalapeños if desired.
