How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the ancho and New Mexico chile peppers in a 4-quart saucepan over high heat for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Remove the chile peppers to a work surface and remove and discard the stems and seeds.  Place the ancho and New Mexico chiles into a blender.  Add the chipotle chile pepper and half the stock.  Cover and blend until the mixture is smooth.

Step 2

Season the beef as desired.  Heat 1 tablespoon oil in the saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the beef in 2 batches and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally.  Pour off any fat.  Remove the beef from the saucepan, cover and keep warm.  

Step 3

Heat the remaining oil in the saucepan over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally.  Stir in the garlic, cumin, cinnamon, oregano, allspice, tomato paste, blended chile mixture and the remaining stock.

Step 4

Return the beef to the saucepan and heat over medium-high heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium-low.  Partially cover the saucepan and cook for 1 1/2 hours or until the beef is fork-tender, stirring occasionally.  Season to taste.
