Slow-Cooked Beef Enchiladas

Enchiladas get a beefy boost of goodness from slow-cooked roast. When the meat is done, assemble with tortillas and bake. Top with lettuce and tomatoes if desired. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    I made this for my husband today. He absolutely LOVED it! I usually make enchiladas with hamburger but there is no comparison to this recipe. I used steak because that's what I had on hand. This is definitely a keeper.

    Would using Beef stock vs broth enhance the flavor or not? Just wondering. Recipe sounds amazing.

    Great. Used low sodium broth and reduced sodium taco seasoning packet. Needed somewhat more enchilada sauce.

    I made this as stated except that my enchilada sauce was a 14 oz can. There was plenty of meat that if needed one could make 8 enchiladas. I tried to make the sauce for the meat, but it didn't turn out; it was too much flour for the water that it just clumped together. Instead I used the extra enchilada sauce. Super yummy! My husband said to not even bother making any other enchiladas but these.
