My mother in law got this recipe from a fire man. It is one of their favorites in the fire house, now it is one of ours. Serve with Flour tortillas, rice, and a sprinkling of cheese, if desired.

This recipe was a huge hit! I made it for my husband and parents around the holidays. Our grocery has a limited offering in the way of chilis so I substituted with jalapenos and it worked fine. While it made a lot it was perfect to serve four people and have leftovers for lunch during the week. I've been recommending the recipe to all my co-workers who enjoy cooking. Read More

With all the wonderful reviews on this dish I expect a great dish. I must have made this wrong because my family didn't like it at all. Good thing I only made half a recipe. Read More

My friend and I cook at a Sober LIving Environment once a week. We doubled the recipe used non-Alcoholic beer served it with 4 giant cans of beans 50 tortillas and rice. The 15 guys LOVED it. I seeded the serrano peppers. Next time I might leave the seed casings in 1/4 of 'em to make it a bit hotter. I want to try making the cubes 1" vs 1.5" just because it's easier for me to cut when buying already cut chuck roasts as my source for beef. Read More
