A sharp reader pointed out that this stew was not named after the state of Colorado! It IS filled with delicious long-cooked stews seasoned with surprising spices like ginger.

This easy, one-pot meal that just gets better by the day. The beef can be swapped out for pork or lamb - just ask your butcher for any braising or stew-meat cuts. The guajillo chilies, which you rehydrate before blending into a sauce, are super delicious but not super spicy, which is why you can get away with using eight of ‘em.
