Chile Colorado Burritos

After seeing a few versions of this recipe floating unopen to on some of my favorite nutrient blogs, I knew I wanted to build these.  Mexican nutrient is i of my favorite cuisines.  I was overjoyed to honour out that the meat for these burritos is made inwards the dull cooker.  Woo-hoo ... major time-saver!  Throw everything inwards the dull cooker inwards the morning, allow it to laid upward all solar daytime as well as you'll only conduct keep a few minutes of prep fourth dimension only earlier dinner to goal upward the recipe!

Today was a wonderful, lazy Saturday.  The married adult man took the kids to the movies this afternoon piece I stayed abode as well as "kept an oculus on dinner" (a.k.a. caught upward on some recordings of Law & Order: SVU as well as The Pioneer Woman).

No, seriously, I did larn some laundry done, too.  But, mainly, I parked my booty on the couch amongst the remote while I snacked on some pita chips as well as hummus.

(Okay ... as well as perhaps I indulged inwards some Häagen-Dazs White Chocolate Raspberry Truffle H2O ice cream.)

Shhhh!  That'll endure our piffling secret!  (P.S. That materials is to run yesteryear away for!)

What were nosotros talking nigh again?  Oh, yeah ... the burritos.

I wishing to advert that at that spot are "purists" out at that spot that volition insist on inflicting me amongst xl lashes for fifty-fifty suggesting the utilization of canned enchilada sauce for this recipe.  I've seen the recipe written amongst both canned as well as homemade.  I went the canned route.  If yous know of a practiced homemade scarlet enchilada sauce recipe that you'd prefer to utilization (and yous wishing to invest the time), who am I to tell no?

The primary 2 brands of canned sauce that I tin commonly honour pretty easily are Old El Paso as well as Las Plamas.  If yous create opt for canned, the Old El Paso mild version is a piffling less-spicy that the Las Palmas brand.  So, that powerfulness endure something to continue inwards hear if cooking for kids who don't similar spicier foods.


2 - 2 1/2 pounds stew meat or other cubed beef  (I used a chuck roast that I trimmed as well as cubed)
1 large tin mild scarlet enchilada sauce (mine was 28 oz. - I alone used nigh two-thirds of the can)
1 (4 oz) tin diced dark-green chiles
1 (8 oz) tin tomato plant sauce
2 beef boullion cubes
1/2 - 1 tin refried beans
2 - 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
vi - 8 flour tortillas (burrito size)


Spray dull cooker amongst non-stick spray.  Add inwards the beef cubes. 

Add inwards the enchilada sauce, dark-green chiles, tomato plant sauce as well as bouillon cubes.

Put lid on as well as laid upward on depression for nigh 8 hours.  (You may honour yous necessitate a piffling to a greater extent than or a piffling less cooking fourth dimension ... depending on the thickness of your meat cubes.  Just build certain your meat is completely tender earlier attempting to shred as well as gather the burritos.)

Once meat is cooked, utilization a slotted spoon to transfer the meat chunks to a large plate or baking sheet.  Break meat apart as well as form of shred it amongst a fork.

Heat refried beans inwards the microwave.

Turn oven on to broil.

Place nigh 1/2 a loving cup of meat onto each tortilla.  Spoon on a chip of the refried beans.

Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of meat/bean layer.  (You could add together some diced onion at this point, if desired.)

Roll upward burrito-style.  The recipe volition yield vi - 8 burritos depending on how full you fill each one.

Line upward rolled burritos into a large sprayed casserole dish.

Spoon some of the remaining sauce from the dull cooker over the burritos.  How much yous utilization is totally upward to you, but I constitute that yous alone necessitate a little.  Since my sauce was a chip spicy, I mean value likewise much sauce would conduct keep been a piffling overpowering.  (After this photograph was taken, I did become dorsum as well as add together a piffling to a greater extent than sauce unopen to the edges of the burrito as well as inwards the bottom of the pan as well as then that the burritos wouldn't burn downwardly nether the broiler.)

Sprinkle some extra cheese on top of each burrito.

Broil for nigh 5 minutes or until cheese is melted as well as bubbly.

If you'd similar your burrito a piffling "wetter" as well as don't hear the extra spice, to a greater extent than sauce tin endure spooned over the top at serving time.

Serve amongst your favorite toppings.  We used shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced dark olives as well as sour cream.

NOTE:  I didn't come upward unopen to using all of the sauce that the meat cooked in.  So, don't endure surprised that yous conduct keep some left.
