Mexican Stew in El Paso--What Was It?

I realize this is a long shot, but thought it'd be worth a try.
In the summer of 1973, we vacationed in El Paso, and were recommened by some locals to try a Mexican buffet. The restaurant's name was possibly something like "Pablo's" or "Pancho's," and we recall it might have been located in one of the poorer sections of town. In spite of its location, it turned out to be an excellent restaurant, and you could have all you can eat for $1.10.
In addition to the usual Mexican dishes, they featured a special kind of stew. It was made with either chicken or pork, and also had carrots, corn, and possibly tomatoes. It had little or no peppers in it, for it was not spicy hot. But it had a most distinctive flavor, and was one of the most WONDERFUL meals we had ever tasted. Unfortunately, we could never find out what it was, for we don't know Spanish, and no one there could speak any English!
Could anyone out there refresh our memory as to the name of the place, or, better still, what that wonderful stew was? If you have even a wild guess, please drop me an e-mail at Marlu70@aol.com
