I also let it cook longer , more like 2-1/2hrs and the meat was so tender and it thickened up nicely.
Terrific! I made a few changes.....I added a teaspoon of oregano and a bay leaf in with the spices, added 5 cloves of minced garlic, replaced the water with beer. I used beef stew meat instead of the roast. I didn't add the pinto beans until the last 45 minutes along with a couple peeled and diced potatoes.Also added in some chopped fresh cilantro at the end. Served with shredded Monterey Jack/cheddar blend,sour cream and warmed flour tortillas on the side-everyone's bowl was clean,barely any leftover!
