When chunks of stewed top sirloin act as garnish (as opposed to a pat of sour cream or sprinkle of chopped cilantro or something), you know you're in for a bold treat.

Cheddar and Monterey jack cheeses are melted on top with that "garnish" and a delightful, semi-hot Anaheim-and-jalapeño red sauce puddles underneath. ($6 lunch/$8 dinner)
