I love this recipe! Spicy, hearty, lots of veggies. Be careful with the achiote...it will stain things it touches.

Great recipie. had trouble finding the achiote paste. Substituted Rojo Sauce, which had nearly identical spices, just more liquidy. Varied the amounts of the squash, potato, and carrots. Used butternut squash as substitute, during cooking it broke down and thickened the sauce very well. Made a fabulous dinner with nearly no left overs! (only three people eating)

Quite good. Halving the recipe still makes for 4 good servings. You can economize your time by prepping the veggies while the meat and soup base are simmering for 35 minutes.
