Green Chili Beef Burritos Recipe

"Recipes that are leaner in fat and calories - like the one for these delicious burritos - helped me lose 30 pounds," confirms Shirley Davidson of Thornton, Colorado. "The meat is so tender."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 8 hours YIELD:24 servings


  • 2 beef sirloin tip roasts (3 pounds each)
  • 4 cans (4 ounces each) chopped green chilies
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 medium jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt-free seasoning blend, optional
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 24 fat-free flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • Chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce and shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, optional


  • 1. Trim fat from roasts; cut meat into large chunks. Place in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Top with the chilies, onion, jalapenos, garlic, chili powder, cumin and seasoning blend if desired. Pour broth over all. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender.
  • 2. Remove beef; cool slightly. Shred with two forks. Cool cooking liquid slightly; skim fat. In a blender, cover and process cooking liquid in small batches until smooth.
  • 3. Return liquid and beef to slow cooker; heat through. Place 1/3 cup beef mixture on each tortilla. Top with tomatoes, lettuce and cheese if desired. Fold in ends and sides. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
