    Made this to cure the craving for rich Mexican food. It wasn't too spicy, as our 4, 7 and 8 year old loved it. But it had a very deep, rich flavor. Was great with white rice, tortillas and home made salsa Verde. My brother is getting into town tonight, and where he lives now doesn't have the best Mexican food, so Ill be making it again for him this evening. <br/><br/>I did not have any tomato pasted, so I subbed in 2 times as much tomato sauce. Worked like a charm!

    Oh, yum! I used chicken stock instead of just water. Might add some heat some other time.

    This is excellent!! We would give it 10 stars if we could. The meat is soo tender and the sauce such great flavor. Served it with Recipe #206911 and fresh corn tortillas.

    We really enjoyed this recipe. The meat was very tender. I made some fresh home made corn tortillas and before I knew it, my husband and daughter were in the kitchen over the pan and eating it right out of the pan with warm tortillas! I didn't even bother to set the table for dinner! Thanks so much for this recipe. This is exactly the type of food we like!
