  • Use fresh cilantro, not dried, for the best flavor.
  • For a spicier dish, use jalapenos instead of serrano peppers.

  • Substitute ground beef for chuck roast. This substitution is beneficial because it is a leaner cut of meat, and will reduce the amount of fat in the dish. It also takes less time to cook, so the dish can be prepared quicker.
  • Substitute jalapeno peppers for serrano peppers. This substitution is beneficial because jalapenos are milder in flavor and will give the dish a more subtle heat. It also makes the dish more accessible to those who prefer a milder flavor.
