  • 4 to 5 pound stew beef, cut into 1/2- to 1-inch cubes
  • 2 large green bell peppers, diced
  • 5 to 6 stalks celery, sliced in chunks
  • 2 large onions (or Spanish) coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoon fresh cilantro minced
  • 4 chipotle peppers, minced
  • 4 large mild chile peppers, skinned, seeded and chopped
  • 2 (28 ounce) cans diced tomatoes, drained
  • 8 garlic cloves minced, or to your taste, the more the better

Seasoning Mix

  • 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 to 8 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves (or Mexican if you can find)
  • 2 tablespoons Masa Harina
  • 3 tablespoons tapioca thickener


  1. Heat oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Place beef, peppers and other vegetables in a large Dutch oven or large stock pot, mix well to combine, (do not brown meat). (If you have a slow cooker or crockpot use that and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours.)
  3. In a blender or food processor, add seasoning ingredients together and blend. Pour over ingredients and mix well.
  4. Cover and place in oven. Cook for 5 to 6 hours or until beef is tender and sauce has thickened.

Serves 12.
