Chile Colorado Burritos




   I am obsessed with mexican food. My Hubby will agree. Whenever we go out to eat, I always vote for a Mexican restaurant, and he always looks at me like I'm nuts and says, "Seriously?"   Ha!

   I can't get enough. The flavors, textures, everything about it is so good! These Chile Colorado Burritos were some of the best I've ever made (and devoured). They're a crock pot meal (HOLLA!), which makes them even more amazing. (Anything that makes my life a little easier, is amazing to me)

   This is a 'throw everything in the crock pot' meal before you head to work, and when you come home, your house will smell deeelish, and with only 5 more minutes of prep time, dinner will be ready!



Chile Colorado Burritos
Recipe slightly adapted from: Food Pusher

2 pounds stew meat or other cubed beef
1 (28 oz) can mild red enchilada sauce ( I only used 3/4 of the can)
1 (4 oz) can diced green chilis
2 beef bullion cubes
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
7 burrito-size, flour tortillas


Directions: Spray crock pot with non-stick spray. Add in the stew meat, enchilada sauce, green chiles and beef bullion cubes. Put lid on, and turn on Low heat. Cook for 8-9 hours.

After 8 or 9 hours, remove lid from crockpot and stir mixture together. The meat is ready, if it easily breaks apart. Using a slotted spoon, place 1/2 cup of meat mixture into the center of one tortilla. Roll up burrito-style and place into a 9x13 baking dish. Repeat with all tortillas.

Spoon the remaining sauce over the tops of burritos, and sprinkle with the shredded cheddar cheese. Place under broiler in the oven, for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve burritos with all your favorite toppings. (Salsa, sour cream, guacamole, etc)  Enjoy!

Oh, do these ever look delicious! I'm also a big fan of Mexican food ~ probably because my husband worked there for over a year and we'd travel there quite often.

Hi! This looks yummy! What kind of crock pot do you have and how old is it? Because the cooking time depends a lot on the brand and when it was made. Thanks

This may be a dumb question but I don't have much experience with bouillon. Do I just put the cubes of bouillon in the crock pot as is or do I dissolve them in some water first and put that water in the crock pot? Thanks for your blog! I love it and have made several things already and they have all been awesome! My favorite so far is the chocolate chip pudding cookies.

This looks so yummy! I just made enchiladas and posted the recipe on my blog yesterday so we are both on the same wavelength. ;)

Found you by way of Pinterest and will be adding you to my rss feed!
