chile colorado burritos and guacamole

 chile colorado burritos and guacamole
Found this wonderful meal here, this was so yummy!! My hubby and i went back for seconds, best part is its slow cooker one. We used Mexican Lipton rice and home made guacamole [will post this recipe here as well, they go great together!]


  • 1 1/2 lbs. stew meat
  • 1 (19 oz) can red enchilada sauce
  • beef bullion cubes
  • 1 can re fried beans
  • 5-7 burrito size tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded cheese more or less depend ending on personal preference


  1. Put beef pieces into crock pot. Top with crushed bouillon cubes and enchilada sauce. Cook on low for 7-8 hours, or until meat is very tender. When beef is done (very tender and flakes off when stirred), taste and add more salt, if desired.
  2. Smear about 2 heaping spoons worth of beans on to the center of each tortilla. Add about 1/2 cup of beef and roll into a burrito.
  3. Place burritos into a greased 9x13 baking pan until it fills the pan. Pour some of extra crock pot sauce over the tops of the burritos to smother them. Place cheese on top.
  4. Broil until cheese becomes bubbly, approx. 2-4 minutes.
  5. This recipe makes about 5 burritos

 we had this with the burritos, yummy as well! It sure did beat the stores versions, will be making this more often! Found this one here

4 ripe avocados
1/2 cup red onion, diced finely
2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced finely
1/4 - 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped finely
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Cut avocados in half and remove pit. Scoop out flesh of avocado and coarsely chop it. Place in a large bowl and slightly mash with a fork. Add the diced onion, tomatoes, cilantro, and garlic and toss together with the avocados. Add the lime juice, salt, and pepper to taste.

Chill until serving. If not serving right away place saran wrap directly against the guacamole so that it does not oxidize and turn brown. Serve with tortilla chips.



  1. Oooohhh....A slow cooker burrito? Way cool!
    And I LOVE LOVE LOVE homemade guacamole. Our guacamole recipe is a lot like yours, and we add peppers to spice it up (jalepeno or cerrano). =0)

    1. yes! it was yummy! I let mine broil 2 minutes to long but was super tasty anyways, I love the idea of a little spice added to the guac! Im making the Guac again this weekend for fajitas and may buy a hot pepper to add in :)
