This recipe has been around in our house for many years now, and every time I make it, I am so glad that I did.

First, the easy prep for the crockpot in the morning makes it a breeze. By the time you’re ready to roll your burritos, the beef is falling apart, loaded with flavor, and smells amazing!

By adding veggies in with the beef, they add flavor and simply melt together into the dish. As we roll the burritos we add refried beans, and everything is covered in the enchilada sauce.

They’re saucy, cheesy, and so so good!

How to make them

  1. Place beef pieces into crockpot. Top with onion, celery,  carrot, garlic, and enchilada sauce. Cook on low for 7-8 hours, or until meat is very tender.
  2. When beef is done (very tender and flakes off when stirred), remove the beef from the crockpot and shred it.
  3. To assemble, smear about 2 heaping spoons worth of refried beans onto the center of each tortilla. Add the shredded beef between the tortillas and roll them up.
  4. Place the rolled burritos into a 9×13 baking pan. Pour the enchilada sauce from the crockpot over the burritos to smother them. Add cheese on top. Pre-heat oven broiler.
  5. Broil until the cheese becomes bubbly, approx. 2-4 minutes.
