Chile Colorado Burritos


1.5 to 2 lbs stew meat or other beef cubed
1 large can of mild (red) enchilada sauce (@ least 19 oz.)
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 can refried beans
1 cup cheddar cheese
5 to 8 burrtios shells.


Put beef, whole bouillon cubes (do NOT add water), and enchilada sauce into a crockpot & cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours, until meat is very tender. 

When beef is done, (very tender and flakes when stirred), taste and add salt to taste, if desired.  Heat up refried beans, & put your oven on broil.  On an oven proof plate, lay out a tortilla.  Place on tortilla about 1/2 cup of the meat, drained by using a slotted spoon, and a spoonful or 2 of beans.  Roll into burrito (hopefully you know how to do this).  Pour some of the remaining enchilada sauce from the crock pot over the burrito to cover it.  Sprinkle with cheese.  Broil until cheese is bubbly, about 2-4 minutes.

Depending on how full you stuff your burritos, this will make 5 to 8 burrtios.
