Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a large pot over high heat; saute rump roast until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Add onions and garlic; saute until onions are softened, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Stir chili powder, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, and bay leaves into meat and vegetables; cook and stir until meat and vegetables are coated in seasonings, about 2 minutes. Add beef stock, enchilada sauce, green chile peppers, and tomato paste; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer until meat is tender, about 50 minutes.

  • Stir pinto beans into soup, mashing beans to thicken if desired; simmer until heated through, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

This recipe is flavorful, but not hot. Increase cayenne pepper amount to add heat.

I double the recipe and freeze half for camping or easy dinner for company.

Made as written and this turned out perfectly. The beef was SUPER tender. You really do need to top it with all of your favorite toppings though in my opinion. I topped mine with avocado cheese sour cream tomato lime wedge and baked tortilla strips. Read More
