 Every Mexican household has a version of this recipe, some made with pork or chicken, but I love my Mom's version, accompanied by rice and beans, simple but delicious. This recipe whips up pretty quickly once stew meat is cooked, adding remaining ingredients will have your meal ready in less than 30 minutes.

 The basic ingredients for Carne Guisada are the meat, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and seasonings. Different recipe versions add carrots, green bell peppers, tomato sauce, and vinegar, all are scrumptious.
