Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 2 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/8 tsp mild, 1/4 tsp medium, 1/2 tsp spicy and 1 tsp extra-spicy! Pick cilantro leaves from stems. Keep leaves and stems separate. Thinly slice cilantro stems. Peel, halve, then cut onion into 1/4-inch pieces. Drain, then rinse black beans.

Cook aromatics

Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions, cilantro stems and 1/4 tsp chipotle powder. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions soften, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook beef

Add beef to the pot with onions. Cook, breaking up lamb into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Add Mexican Seasoning, tomato sauce base and beans. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Season with salt and pepper.

Finish stew

Add crushed tomatoes and 1/2 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pot with beef. Stir together, then bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer stew, stirring occasionally, until stew thickens slightly, 5-6 min. Season with salt and pepper. (TIP: If you have time, keep it simmering on the stove for longer! It gets better the longer it cooks!)

Finish and serve

Add sour cream and guacamole to a small bowl. Stir to combine. Divide stew between bowls. Dollop with guacamole cream, then sprinkle feta and cilantro leaves over top. Serve tortilla chips on the side for scooping.
