DirectionsGather your ingredients.Rinse off the beef cubes and pat dry. Place flour in a bag or bowl and coat the meat. Next, heat your oil in a pan and brown the meat for about 5 minutes and then place in your crockpot. Next, saute your onions, garlic and bell peppers. Pour your bottle of beer over the meat in the crock pot and then add your sauteed vegetable. Next, add the rest of your ingredients. No need to cut up the chipotle or serranos as they break down while cooking. Cook this on low and slow for 8 to 10 hours.
Serve in warm flour tortillas and shredded cheese with a small dollop of sour cream if desired or just a squeeze of lime and fresh cilantro.
This needs to be a thick stew, so if it is not thick enough add a mixture of flour and water that you have thickened over the stove.Alright, now if you really want this Carne Guisada to go along way you can make a Supreme Taco and the base starts with refried beans.Heat the beans in a skillet until nice and hot. Then, spread the beans out on the flour tortilla.Then put a smaller amount of Carne Guisada. Maybe 4 pieces of meat and a generous amount of Mexican cheese blend. Next, add sour cream and some fresh chopped cilantro too.
Now, if you are going to make this for a larger crowd make up the tacos yourself and wrap then in a square piece of tinfoil. You can get a nice big box of already cut square tinfoil at Sam's Club. When you wrap them up the cheese is going to melt and they are just wonderful.
