Carne Adovada in ABQ (or greater NM)

I've never been a great carne adovada fan, but have recently discovered a couple versions that I really enjoy. I'm hoping to find other similar recipes.

I love love love the stuff at Golden Pride chicken (!), which might be the same as at Frontier (which I've never tried), as I know they're owned by the same folks and share other things like the tortillas and green chile stew.

What makes theirs different, to me, is that (on a good day) it's juicy with lots of sauce, a bit tangy, and doesn't have much of that raw red chile flavor that so many do. Just a nice, tangy, rich, spicy, mouth-filling flavor. Now, I'm not saying this is the most authentic, as I'm pretty sure the raw-tasting stuff you get most places is the "real thing", but it's the kind I want.

I've also enjoyed it at Papa Felipe's (where I get it with cheese and veggies in the little casserole, so that could be part of the appeal), but Golden Pride's the real winner. Fortunately, I work right across the street from one, but am interested in branching out. I don't try it very often because I don't want to get the wrong kind, which I really don't enjoy. I'd like to get some informed recs to go on.

So -- anybody know of some great carne similar to the ones above? Purty please?
