Colorado Beef Burritos
These were the really good shredded beef kind of burritos, like you get in Mexican restaurants. Yum! And they were super easy. The recipe is a freezer Crockpot meal, so I actually had it sitting in my freezer ready to go. Then I just dumped it all in my Crockpot on Sunday to cook. You still have to shred the meat and make the burritos, but it's still pretty easy.
I got the recipe from baked in the south. There are a whole bunch of yummy freezer-to-Crockpot meals on there that I'm planning to make.
2 lb. stew beef
1 c. chopped onion
1 c. beef stock
2 (12 oz) cans red enchilada sauce
6-8 flour tortillas
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Label gallon freezer bag and add stew beef, onions, beef stock and 1 can enchilada sauce. Freeze.
(If you don't want to freeze it, just add the ingredients straight to the Crockpot instead.)
Cook on low for 6-8 hrs until beef is tender. Remove beef and shred.
Divide beef evenly between tortillas and roll into burrito. Lay burritos seam-side down on greased baking dish. Pour remaining can of enchilada sauce over burritos and top with cheese.
Bake at 375 F for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve with salsa, lettuce, sour cream or other toppings if you want. I liked mine plain. :)
