Mexican Caldillo (Stew)

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

Ingredients
  • 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
Directions

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)
