Carne Guisada is a Tex-Mex favorite of mine for sure. I think you will find this Carne Guisada recipe about as simple as they come. One of the things I probably miss the most about not living in Texas is not being able to just jump in my car and drive a block or two and pick up a couple Carne Guisada Tacos. Living in Alabama presents little chance of finding a Carne Guisada taco anywhere.
As I think about it, I don’t think I’ve seen Carne Guisada outside of Texas. Looks like I am going to have to cook it myself. Fortunately, this is a pretty simple task and it will yield delicious results and this Carne Guisada recipe will definitely scratch that itch.
If you have spent any time in Texas indulging in Carne Guisada, you’ve probably noticed there are a few variations. Some places serve Carne Guisada with a brown gravy. And some serve it with red gravy. I’ve had it with and without diced potatoes although I prefer it without.
For Instance, my favorite way to eat Carne Guisada is on a flour tortilla smeared with beans and cheese. Then I top it off with Pico de Gallo and maybe some salsa. My wife, however, likes it on a flour tortilla with sour cream, cheese, and pico. It can also be served it with hot flour tortillas with beans and Mexican rice on the side or how about Carne Guisada rolled in a corn tortilla smeared with beans and cheese, topped with onions, enchilada sauce, and more cheese. So many choices…
