Super Easy Beef Enchiladas

Do you have your Cinco de Mayo menu planned yet?
I don't love Enchiladas, but these looked so yummy on Pinterest, so I thought I'd give them a try...  They were good!  Nothing fancy, but yummy!  I will make them again!
Easy Beef Enchiladas Recipe
Recipe from HERE
  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds stew meat or other beef cubed (top sirloin is great)
  • 1 large can mild (red) enchilada sauce* (at least 19 oz.)
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes (I didn't have, so didn't use)
  • 1/2 can refried beans (optional)
  • 5-7 burrito size flour tortillas
  • 1 cup or so of shredded cheddar cheese


Put beef, bouillon, and enchilada sauce into the crockpot on low 7-8 hours, or until meat is very tender. (I cooked on high for 4 hours)

When beef is done (very tender and flakes off when stirred), taste and add more salt, if desired. Heat up refried beans in the microwave (covered and in a microwave-proof dish, of course)and put your oven on broil. On an oven-proof plate, or cookie sheet even, lay out a tortilla. Place on tortilla about 1/2 cup of the meat, drained by using a slotted spoon, and a spoonful or two of beans. Pour some of the remaining enchilada sauce from the crock pot over the burrito to cover it. Sprinkle with some cheddar cheese. Broil until cheese is bubbly, about 2-4 minutes.  (this recipe does an individual enchilada at a time, but I just rolled them all put them in a pan and then did the broil thing)
Makes 5-7 burritos, depending on how full you make them.

What it looked like on the inside.

I made some baked taquitos with some of the filling too.  Yum!
