    bmxmama's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by my friend Sherri. I have sometimes roasted the veggies before adding them to the pot, and I usually add the 6 cloves of garlic, but that is optional if you don't like garlic as much as I do. If I can find good fresh tomatoes, I use those instead of the canned ones. I also take the seeds out of the jalapenos, as my kids can't handle the heat but love to eat it. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as my family does.

      Our family always called this 'Chicana'(4 generations). We use med size cubed pork rubbed in the salt pepper garlic comino a pinch of clove powder, stew the meat in broth or just water with half an onion, till just becoming tender, then raise heat to reduce liquid add oil and stir fry till meatchunks become beautiful carmelization/just crisping. Add tomatoes, (fresh or stwewed Mexican style canned for ease)and small can of tomato sauce, sliced celery, green bell peppers Yummy. whole or chopped serranos or jalapeno . reduce heat stew till all ingredients are soft and tender and juices thicken about 25-30 min on low (add water if sauce to thick for your tastes. Well worth it and easier than it reads here. Makes great side dish to beans and rice or burrito filling somethimes in winter I add med diced potatoes and some frozen mixed vegetables heartier and so yummy, always a hit. You really cannot mess this dish up, you can be so creative. It is the sauce that is the canvas.

      Awesome! I halved the recipe because there are only two of us and we got almost six servings out of it. I was too lazy to chop the beef, so I just used beef stew meat. I was in a hurry so I cooked on high for four hours. I think I am going to bake the filling in some taquitos for lunch today! Very easy and delicious. We will make again for sure!

      My husband and I enjoyed this meal. I followed the directions exactly, but felt it was missing something. I think I will add cumin and extra chili powder next time because we like our Mexican dishes spicky. But all in all it was a very good dish.
