fiesta brand is pretty decent...

I make from scratch.. experiment a bit and come up with your own.

Spices I use are salt, pepper, chili powder, and a lot of cumin

other ingredients are chopped onion, minced garlic, fresh jalapeno, and a can of diced tomatoes.

Fiesta is what he's talking about. It's a Bolger product. Fine print above the fiesta logo.

ah.. can't read fine print without my cheaters!

Homemade is by far superior over any store bought mix...

this is the way I was taught by an old Hispanic cook.

dust the cubed meat with flour and lightly pan fry. Move the meat to a pot. In the fry pan - drain most grease, toss in a little flour in with the drippings and stir for a light roux. That step is what creates the base for the entire dish. Add all the ingredients plus a little water to the pot. Simmer till you reach your preference on how tender you want the meat. Then mix in enough roux to thicken the sauce. final step is to adjust your seasonings to your taste.

That works for me. I rarely use spice mixes. A little of this a pinch of that makes it tasty.

I will see if I can track down the spice blend recipe that a friend came up with that we used for a wedding dinner in NC about 6 years ago ... some of the best I have ever had.

Try this you will be happy with the result. Very similar to what I do. Ive made it with anything from beef and store bought pork to deer and javalina and its all been good.
