If you're missing a Taste of San Antonio, this Carne Guisada recipe will take you back to Fiesta!!! I've used this in the place of Chili for Chili Cheese Dogs and have also made Frito Pie using the Carne Guisada and it was out of this world!!! Better than Taco Cabana's Carne Guisada, perfect for Breakfast tacos, served in a Torta or on a plate with Spanish Rice, refried Beans and fresh Flour Tortillas! Now all you need is an Ice Cold Big Red or a Modeleo Especial!
