Mexican Caldillo (Stew)

This is one of my favorite soup recipes my mom used to always make.

  • half an onion
  • 1 lb stew meat (cubed)
  • 1 jalapeño
  • 1 can green chilies
  • 2 large potatoes cubed
  • 5 c. water
  • 6 beef bullion cubes

Brown beef with onion and jalapeño in large pot. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are cooked (15-20 min.)

Serves 4 adults.

For a tasty variation serve with tortilla chips, cheese, sour cream, and guacamole in the soup (we discovered this to help tone down the spiciness when we thought we'd put in 2 or 3 jalapeños)
