A Mexican inspired take on beef stew, that includes chillies, peppers, tomatoes, cumin and garlic. It calls for the meat to be browned in lard, but olive oil could be used instead.
Really enjoyed this as did all the family - 16 Apr 2015
This is like a stew version of a good Chilli con carne. I used lean lamb and found I had to stew the meat for a good 90 minutes to get the lamb to be tender. I also switched out the hotter green chillis for some milder red chillis as the family don't like too much heat. Other than that, this is a delicious dish - 02 Oct 2013
