Store-bought green salsa makes a bright flavor base for this stew.

The second time I made it came out completely differently -- the salsa used completely influences the flavor. The first time, I used Trader Joe's and it was very mild (to the point of bland). This time I used a local one I found at the store and the flavor really came through.

A very easy recipe. Not as much flavor as I expected, but I blame that on the salsa I used. I ate it few times for lunch or dinner through the week. One night, when I ran out of limes and cilantro, I added some kick with a splash sriracha hot sauce and added a side of plain yogurt mixed with a little toasted cumin for something different. Making this again with a different salsa. I plan to double it and strain out some of the meat for tacos.
