The name of this dish refers not to the state of Colorado, but to the colour of the dish (colorado means ‘coloured red’ in Spanish). It’s a popular everyday meal in northern Mexico and southern Texas, and here we’re using lots of ancho, guajillo and chipotle chillies to impart a fabulous rich colour and deep savoury flavour to this simple stew. On the side is arroz verde (‘green rice’), which gets its colour from fresh coriander and a blend of green Mexican herbs, and crunchy pico de gallo to cut through the richness of the stew.
