VERY tasty! I cooked the meat all day in a crock pot instead and then transferred it to stove top to boil down the rest of the liquid - it broke apart almost completely on its own. I served with your spanish vegetable recipe- wonderful meal!

This was a great recipe. I only had 1 pound of stew meat, so I halved the recipe. I also added 1/2 t. ground coriander and I divided the chili powder with chipotle chili powder. Turned out great!!!

I made this exactly as written and I would only make one small change. I'd use less salt because it was pretty salty in the end. Great recipe and so easy!

I use a package of taco seasoning. A family favorite!

Very good overall! I took a shortcut: instead of boiling the meat and adding the spices, and letting it simmer for 2 hours to make it really tender, I substituted chicken and cooked it up in the pan on the stove, then shredded it and added the remaining ingredients - worked like a charm and saved TONS of time. Once you have the ckn ready to go, the recipe comes together really quick! And I like that you didn't need a 1,000 ingredients for this! It was really good, and we froze the leftovers. Husband approved!

I made these for my friends on Mexican dinner party night, and they were gone in a flash! They are so delicious! I made the extreme salsa to go with it but since none of my friends are masochists they just ate it with the guacamole and sour cream. An excellent recipe, thanks for posting xxx

Oh my goodness....this is heaven on a plate. We couldn't get enough of these. I have never made chimis with shredded beef, always ground beef, and these were delicious. I served these with the green chili sauce, spanish rice, refried beans and guacamole. I will definately be making this again it really is fantastic.....Stephanie

Excellant. I cooked stew meat in pressure cooker with little water and seasonings (didn't use oregano, green chiles), meast was so tender. Added alittle chipolte Mrs. Dash, kosher salt, garlic powder paprika and tomato sauce w garlic & onion. They were fried, topped off with salsa, fabulous & filling. Will bake them next time and see if good. Thanks for tip about toothpicks!

This is an awsome dish. I did it just as directed and it was perfect. I used the chili sauce which was wonderful. Lots of flavor in this dish and very authentic spanish/mexican food. My hubby used to live in Arizona and he compared it to a place down there. He was amazed at the similarities. Words can't explain how good this was. I also think it would be great with any meat....pork, chicken, beef, venison...AWSOME!!

Great recipe! Combo of spices is pleasing. Use FLOUR tortillas. I froze some of the uncooked ones, defrosted , fried and they were just as dandy!
