This was yummy! However, like others have said, if you use stew meat, you really, really need to simmer it for a long time to get the meat tender. If you don't have time, then use a tender cut of meat like sirloin tips. I ended up, out of neccessity, simmering it for 3 hours and it was wonderful! I'm going to try it in my slow cooker all day next time.
This would also be great with chicken or pork. I need to double the recipe next time because we didn't have enough leftovers for all the work/time.
I did have some leftovers over a mixture of steamed white and wild rice and it was a wonderful combination.
Originally I served this as a filling with sharp cheddar/jack cheese in flour tortillas! YUMMY! This is a keeper!
**Added** I made this a second time in the crock pot and it was great! I browned the meat with the seasonings, onion, and garlic, then put it in the crock and then poured the sauce over it. I used more salsa this time (16 oz to 1.3 lbs meat), added a half-can of tomato paste I had in the fridge, and some diced potatoes. Awesome! I cooked it on low for 8 hours.
