Everyone who loves their crock pot, raise your hand!!
The crock pot makes life so easy on those busy "run-run" kind of days.
This recipe is one of our very favorites.
crock pot shredded beef burritos
I lived in San Diego for a short while years ago. There's not much to dislike about San Diego!! But one of the things I loved the most?
I fell in love with the little taco stands. To this day when we visit, it's our very first stop, Roberto's in Mission Beach. It doesn't matter what time of the day our flight lands, we stop there first.
Thank goodness they are open 24 hours a day!
My favorite thing has always been the shredded beef burritos. They just have so much flavor.
I attempted to make them, using my crock pot, and they are a pretty close match.
yum. added a little fresh salsa bowl, and chips, perfect.
Crock Pot Shredded Beef Burritos
3-4 pound beef rump roast
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 can diced green chilies (or use fresh if you have them)
1 large onion sliced
2 T. beef bouillon
flour tortillas for burritos
toppings of choice
Do not drain the Rotel or the chilies.
Dump everything into your crock pot.
I cook it on high for about 5-6 hours. Basically you want it to get to the "shredded falling apart stage." Shred meat and put back in the crock pot until ready to eat.
I steam my tortillas so that they are easier to wrap. Place meat inside and wrap burrito style.
I prefer mine without other things, but my family chooses between any and all of these:
shredded lettuce, cheese, sour cream, guacamole.
The burritos pictured here were lucky enough to have also have fresh peppers from my uncle's garden!!
Here in Nebraska, we aren't that lucky year 'round.
how gorgeous are these little babies?
So, the only thing that's really missing from this burrito is the atmosphere if Mission Beach...especially the ocean!
Ah.... Roberto's at Mission Beach... see you soon...but until then I will feed my cravings with these!
