One of IT Guy's favorite things when we go out for Mexican food is Chile Colorado. He loves the deep, rich flavor of that dish. So I decided to make him happy by making these burritos. He was in heaven, I have to say. Not only did he eat his, he ate half of mine! There was plenty left over to pack in his lunch and I know that makes him happy. These were super good....super easy and made the house smell divine!
Slow Cooker Chile Colorado Burritos
1 3-pound chuck roast
10-ounce cans red chile sauce (I used Las Palmas brand. If you can't
find red chile sauce, use red enchilada sauce. Enchilada sauce doesn't
have that same rich, red chile flavor but it will do in a pinch.)
1 large onion ~ sliced
1 teaspoon chile powder (optional but recommended, especially if you're using enchilada sauce instead of chile sauce)
Salt and pepper to taste
Large, burrito size flour tortillas
Spray your crock pot with cooking spray.
Place sliced onions in the bottom.
Place roast on top of onions.
In a small bowl, combine the sauce and the seasonings.
Pour over the roast, reserving 1/2 cup of the sauce for later.
Cook on high 4 - 5 hours or until roast is tender and easily shredded.
Shred roast and remove any fat.
Heat flour tortillas and place desired amount of meat and grated cheese into each one.
Roll up burrito style and place into a baking pan.
Pour reserved sauce over burritos and top with more grated cheese.
Heat in 350 degree oven until hot and cheese has melted.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
