I saw this recipe on Pinterest and I thought it sounded delicious.  This was so simple – stew meat slow cooked in enchilada sauce.  I like to make my own enchilada sauce, but feel free to use 2 cans of store bought enchilada sauce if you are pressed for time.  I whipped up the enchilada sauce the night before and threw everything in the crock pot before I left for work in the morning.  It only took about 5 minutes to have dinner on the table when I got home from work.  You can serve this with some refried beans and/or Mexican rice. This was one of the most delicious burritos that we’ve ever eaten.  Chicken Legs absolutely loved this.  He wanted to eat the whole batch himself!  (He didn’t, but he wanted to!)

  1. I have checked at Publix, Winn Dixie, World Market and Target- no luck. I bought the Goya SOFRITO Tomato cooking base, but not sure if it will work?

  2. I'm having a hard time finding the Knorr's Caldo de Tomate. Can you all post the substitutions you made? Would Whole Foods have it? I haven't checked there yet.

  3. I made these Friday, they turned out great…didn't find Knorr's, but a similar product, I assume, just in another brand. I will definitely make these again. I used London Broil, still somewhat froze, covered it in the enchilada sauce, set it to low about 8:30am, turned it up that night to high for about 2 hours, and it was incredibly tender and tasty.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  4. I am so making these! DROOL! There is a restaurant here that serves Steak Colorado enchiladas that are spicy heaven

  5. Was the beef stew meat easy to shred after 8 hours in the crock pot? Can't wait to try this over the weekend!

  6. Teresa – the Knorr's Caldo de Tomate is in the Mexican food section of the grocery store. It is a tomato/chicken bouillon. It is great for Mexican sauces and rice.

  7. Angee – the homemade enchilada sauce is life changing! You will never use enchilada sauce from the can again!

  8. Isn't it amazing? I also tried this when I found the recipe on Pinterest. I used Knorr's gel boullion and it was amazing!! I am anxious to try your homemade enchilada sauce!

  9. I prefer homemade enchilada sauce too, taste SOOOOOO much better. But your version is way faster and much easier than Alton Brown's version that I use.

    Have you tried Knorr's chipotle cubes? Those little things are awesome.

  10. I'm not familiar with Knorr's Caldo de Tomate. Is this something dry in the spice section, or canned from the Mexican food section?
