    Which step adds the leftover roast?

    1. Melissa

      So sorry. I needed to check over this recipe better and obviously update it. 🙂 Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Stir the cubed roast in after you have mixed the beans, spices and water.

    I had 1 lb of leftover beef roast so I needed to come up with a way to use it up. This recipe looked perfect! I didn’t have the chili beans so I skipped that. Also, I cooked the onions in bacon grease for the extra flavor. I loved that this was so flavorful and a bit brothy, but not spicy. Everybody went back for a second bowl! I served with sour cream, tortilla chips, and crispy Hatch Chiles, also with some sauteed yellow squash.

      Yay! Thank you so much for coming back and taking the time to tell me you enjoyed it! It’s been too long since I’ve made this recipe. I’m going to have to put it on the menu after your review. 🙂

    My husband gives this a 10. I had to make some substitutions because of what I had and didn’t have in my pantry. I found with the 2 cups of water it was pretty soupy. So after simmering for 30 minutes, I upped the temperature to medium and reduced it until it was our preferred consistency.

      If your husband give it a 10, that is an awesome compliment! I love your modifications. Thank you so much for coming back to let me know you enjoyed the recipe.
