Shredded Beef Enchiladas

During autumn and winter I love "comfort food" 
and to me a good casserole or soup is comforting.
This tasty enchilada recipe is tasty and satisfying - perfect for the cooler days.
Plus this recipe is great for using leftover roast beef.
When I made this dish I pretty much threw in what I had on hand
and it turned out quite delicious :)


Here is how I made it. . .

Ingredients:

about 2 cups shredded cooked meat
(I had half of an uncooked roast so I cooked it in the slow cooker all day in some broth)
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2 teaspoons oil
1 - 2 cans (10 oz) red enchilada sauce
1 can (10 oz) Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilies), drained
4 freshly roasted green chilies (4 oz can of chilies will work too)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups cheddar cheese 
(I did not have enough cheddar so I mixed in some mozzarella and it was very good)
6 flour tortillas (burrito size)

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat and cook garlic for about 5 minutes.
Mix in the can of drained Rotel, shredded meat, one can of enchilada sauce,
green chilies, cumin, chili powder, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
Bring the mixture to a boil and let it simmer uncovered for 5 - 10 minutes,
or until mixture has thickened.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish 
and spread a little bit of enchilada sauce from the second can on the bottom.
Fill each tortilla with about 2/3 cups of the mixture 
(my mixture was slightly juicy which is the way I wanted it).
Add some cheese and then roll up and place into prepared baking dish.
Do this will all 6 tortillas.
If there is any mixture left over then pour it on top of the enchiladas.
Pour however much of the 2nd can of enchilada sauce on top as well
(you can use all of it or just some of it - it depends on how saucy you like it).
I used about half of the second can.
Cover with remaining cheese and bake for 20 - 25 minutes.

Serve with beans and rice for a tasty meal on a chilly autumn evening.


What is your favorite comfort food?

Love and hugs to you, 
sweet friends.

That really does look good. One of my favourites is beef stew and dumplings, a great go to when it is cold.

Cheryl said...

Oh, my! These sound so delicious!! Thanks ever so much for sharing, sweet friend. :) Sending you much love today!

Debbie Harris said...

Mmm...looks mighty tasty :-)
Those beans look delicious too. I've been wanting to make chicken enchiladas for your dad, that is something I rarely make, but I think he would like the beef.
My comfort food for this time of year is soups, I would have them more often if your father would eat them. I made a potato soup the other day with our garden potatoes and oooh was it ever good. nice and creamy.
And of course anything pumpkin this time of year is over the top comfort. :-)

Enjoy your day, it's a beautiful one.
Love you~~ Mom

Enchiladas, one of my favorites! These shredded beef enchiladas look delicious, Stephanie. You know, my mom made her famous enchiladas, and everyone in the family loved them. The girls still make them from time to time. Yes, comfort foods are good during Autumn and Winter season, and this dish is perfect. Your pictures are so nice showing how scrumptious they look. :)

love to you, sweet Stephanie.

My favorite comfort food is this smoked Shepard's pie I make, an adaptation of a Rachel Ray recipe. I just sink into that stuff. This recipe of yours looks wonderful, and leftover roast beef is frequent around here. Perfect.
Have a beautiful weekend.
