Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Enchiladas — tender shredded beef cooked in a simple homemade enchilada sauce. Layer in tortillas, top with cheese and bake until bubbly! You’ll never use canned enchilada sauce again!
1 2 lb chuck roast
salt and pepper
2 cups low-sodium beef broth
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 cup of your favorite salsa
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water to make a “slurry”
10- 12 large flour tortillas
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- Season the roast on all sides with salt and pepper and place it in the bottom of your slow cooker. Whisk together beef broth, vinegar, salsa, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, and garlic powder. Pour over roast. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 hours or until beef is tender and shreds easily.
- Remove roast to a large plate and shred. Pour remaining broth from the slow cooker into a saucepan over medium heat. Slowly whisk in cornstarch slurry. Cook for a few minutes until sauce begins to thicken. Taste and add additional salt and pepper, or other seasonings, as needed.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Pour 1/2 cup of sauce over the beef and toss. Fill each tortilla with a spoonful of shredded beef and a spoonful of shredded cheese. Roll up and place in the pan, seam-side down. Pour desired amount of sauce over the enchiladas. Top with remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, until bubbly.
