Carne Guisada II

A Mexican beef stew smothered in a semi-spicy gravy. Simple to make, but tastes wonderful. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice, and/or homemade tortillas. Cooking time may be cut, but the meat will be less tender.

Menudo Rojo (Red Menudo)

Rating: 4 stars 66
Inexpensive to make, and fully authentic, this menudo will have your Latin lovers swooning! This recipe uses a combination of chiles to deliver its trademark red color, and packs a mildly spicy punch. And it is really quite easy to make - my husband absolutely devoured it the first time I made it.

Instant Pot® Taco Soup
Rating: 5 stars 13

This soup is fast to make, uses minimal ingredients, and is great when served with sliced avocado. To speed prep even more, use salsa in place of the onion and RO*TEL®. If you want a thicker soup, omit the broth. Serve with tortilla chips is you like.
