CARNE CON CHORIZO Y PAPAS : Beef With Chorizo And Potatoes
A different take on meat and potatoes, this easy, spicy guisado is made with chorizo, tender beef, potatoes, plenty of garlic, and spicy chiles de árbol. Be sure to buy Mexican chorizo, which is a soft uncured sausage flavored with chiles, garlic, cumin, and marjoram. Beef chorizo tastes the same as the pork version, and both are available at Latin markets. Serve the guisado with rice and flour tortillas, or use it as a filling for burritos or sopes. To reduce the heat, cut back on the chiles de árbol.
