We are back from Hawaii and spending a day at my parents’ house before heading back to San Francisco. This afternoon my mom and I made shredded beef enchiladas with green chile sauce. It was so great to come home and make a home-cooked meal with her after being on vacation for 2 weeks. You can also make these with chicken. I can’t decide which version I like better! What’s your preference? We also made fresh salsa and guacamole to go along with the enchiladas-I was in heaven! Try my mom’s amazing salsa recipe and my guacamole recipe with these enchiladas as a topping.
Slow-Cooked Shredded Beef Enchiladas
- 1-2 lbs sirloin roast
- ½ cup beef stock
- 1 tbsp taco seasoning
- 2 tsp cumin
- 2 tsp coriander
- Kosher salt
- 20 corn tortillas
- 28 oz can green chile enchilada sauce
- 3 cups shredded Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese
- 2 Roma tomatoes
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped cilantro
- Canola oil
- Mix salt, cumin, coriander and taco seasoning together in a bowl.
- Use half of the mixture to rub on one side of the sirloin roast, and the remaining half to rub on the other side.
- Set roast in center of a 3qt crockpot and pour beef broth around the meat (not on top!).
- Cover and cook on low for 7 hours, turning once after 3.5 hours.
- Remove the roast from crockpot and place on a large plate.
- Using two forks, shred the meat into small pieces. Cover and set aside.
- Heat a small skillet on low and add ½ tbsp canola oil in the center.
- Dip corn tortillas in oil on both sides until soft, one at a time. Place on a plate covered with a paper towel, and place another paper towel on top to keep soft.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Dip each tortilla in green chile enchilada sauce and place on a 15x10 casserole dish.
- Add a few tbsp shredded meat and cheese in each tortilla, and roll tightly. Make sure they are all seam-side down.
- When all are rolled, top with remaining green chile sauce, cheese, tomatoes, cilantro, and olives.
- Bake in the oven for 45 minutes.
- Serve warm with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole.

Being on vacation is great and I always hate coming home but one of the pluses for being back at home is being able to make home-cooking meals again. These enchiladas look amazing.
Nice dish! I’ve made something similar, although it’s been ages. I like both beef and chicken, but I think chicken works slightly better. Good stuff – thanks.
Yum! Oh my gosh your enchiladas look amazing!!! Ohhh, I want to make these for dinner next week!
This looks ridiculously wonderful 😀
