Ingredients:

  • 2-1/2 pounds beef Stew Meat, cut into 1 to 1-1/2 inch pieces
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped white onion
  • 5 jalapeno peppers, chopped
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) beef broth
  • 1 can (29 ounces) hominy, drained
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 sprig fresh epazote or 1 tablespoon dried epazote leaves, crushed (optional)
  • 2 small zucchini, chopped (2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Toppings:
  • Lime wedges, chopped fresh cilantro, crisp tortilla strips, sliced onion, crumbled Mexican cheese (queso fresco, cotija or anejo), sour cream (optional)
