Default Simple Carne Guisada

First let me say, I am NOT a believer in "follow the directions on the label" type products, but this one is worth trying. Fiesta brand Carne Guisada seasoning can be found at any major grocery store and it's simple enough to make at home or at the lease. Just a couple of pounds of your favorite stew meat, whether you like pork, beef, or venison, stew it until fork tender, add seasoning cover and simmer 15 minutes, or just follow the directions on the label. It made a believer out of me. I must admit when I was cooking it last night, I was very skeptical that something this simple could taste anywhere close to good carne guisada should taste like, but boy was I fooled and so will you.

I have been a fan of that stuff for quite a while! A little bit of that stuff, slices of cheddar, sliver of avacado in a tortilla... a little slice of heaven!

I agree. Surprised me also that you could get good Carne Guisada from a big name spice rack, but it may me a believer.

Do you add anything else like onions, garlic, tomato, peppers, etc...? I may have to give this a try soon, just want to make sure I do it right.

Is this a package of seasonings (like taco seasoning packets) or is this in a jar, like fajita seasoning. I can not find either at my local walmart or HEB.

It's in a jar like the fajita seasoning. I saw it last night at our HEB down here in Taylor and thought no way can that be good but I will give it a try. I have a pot of the Caldo kit that HEB has i nthe meat section on the stove right now.

It sure smells good and hopefully tastes good too.

I made some today, however I veered away from the recipe some. I added a chopped onion, 5 cloves choppes garlic, 3 chipotles in adobo, and an extra tbsp of the seasoning. I added the seasoning from the beginning and cooked in my pressure cooker. When the meat was tender I added potatoes and cooked for another 15min in the pressure cooker. My wife and grandmother loved it so much they ate it all.

All recipes can be improved, but if you haven't tried this, follow the label first and then decide if find the need to change it. I like adding a few potatoes, but I don't change the seasoning.

FYI--Weekend before last I entered a fundraiser chili cookoff, I don't do chili, but it was for a good cause. I was running late and when my chili was almost done I needed a thickening agent. I had forgotten to bring anything, so I dug around and found a little of the Carne Guisada seasoning and decided why not. Well my why not turned into a 2nd place trophy! Thanks Bolners!

It is great stuff, been using it for years. I add 2 cans of tomato sauce and one can of water or until meat is covered then throw in a couple of serranos and add the Carne Guisada seasoning to taste.
