Chuck Roast Enchiladas

Chuck Roast Enchiladas www.eatathomecooks


This is one of those two step recipes that you have to plan ahead for.  It’s also one of those throw-together recipes that are so nice.  And it can be a use-up-the-leftovers recipe.

The thing is, you have to cook the chuck roast.  Mainly, this involves throwing it in a slow cooker with salt and pepper and leaving it to cook all day.

But after that, you get to choose your own adventure for this chuck roast.  You can go ahead and make the enchiladas the same night.

Or you can pop the meat in the freezer, so you’ll have the makings of a throw-together dinner another time.

Or, if by chance you have leftover roast, you can repurpose that meat in these enchiladas.

We loved this beefy version of enchiladas.  Everyone in my family likes any and all kinds of enchiladas.  That is, everyone but my youngest son.  I used to think it was the green chilis he doesn’t like.  But it may be more of a texture thing with the tortilla and sauce.  I’m not sure, but sometimes he has to endure an enchilada dinner because the rest of us really like them.

Here’s what you’ll need to fix these.  I’ll also add a separate recipe for cooking the chuck roast.  If you happen to find roasts on sale, it’s a great meat to cook ahead and shred for enchiladas, soup, bbq, beef and noodles…  Cooked meat in the freezer means easy meals!

    I’ve never cooked a roast in the slow cooker before – does it really take 7-8 hours on high? Most of my slow cooker recipes follow a “3-4 hours on high, or 7-8 on low” pattern, so I just wanted to make sure. I love the idea of freezing the meat – that sounds so handy!

  2. I just want to be sure that there is no liquid being added to the roast when you cook it. I don’t want to ruin my roast……..TY in advance!
