A true tex-mex recipe If you know what carne guisada is then this is the real mcoy if you don't know this is the way to find out!
Nahh, this ain't it.
I used 3 tsp. of ground cumin and 2 x-large or 3 small garlic cloves, minced. Plus I added 1 tsp garlic powder. Also, 1 Green Pablano Chile instead of 2 jalapenos makes this recipe child friendly. I love this recipe though! Thanks Mike
my whole family really enjoyed this, I cooked it in the pan like it said and then threw it all together in my crock pot and went Christmas shopping and after a long day we came home to the wonderful aroma and all we had to do was fix our plates. How wonderful was that??? only downfall was it wasn't as spicy as I woudl have liked so next time I will add an extra jalepeno.
Yes, this was unlike any other Carne Guisada I had ever had. Much more tomatoey. But what ever you call it, it is absolutely delicious. I will cook it over and over again. I served it with flour tortillas and it was a huge hit with my family. You must like tomaotes! I omited the shortening and just used Pam cooking spray. After living in South Texas for many years this was a refreshing version of Carne Guisada.
I used this recipe as a starting point. Used about 3lbs of wild pork instead of beef, 2 1/2 tsps cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, and a can of Rotel tomatoes & chilis instead of the fresh tomatoes. It was awesome! Note: If you omit the cumin, it AIN'T Carne Guisada!
This is a Really good recipe! I let it simmer for about an hour and a half. But, I'm sure just an hour would be ok : ) my husband and 8 year old really like it when I make this recipe!
One of my favorite recipes....I make this as printed and we all love it. Delicious.......updated! I just made this again and I used the can of rotel tomatoes instead of the fresh ones and I also added Chili powder and a tad bit extra cumin. I also cut up the stewed tomatoes. Thanks for posting this recipe
