This week on Ultimate Recipe Swap we’re sharing recipes that work well in the slow cooker. When I do big freezer cooking days, I almost always have one or more crockpots cooking away on the counter while I do work on other things.
One of my favorite items is Shredded Beef Filling. It’s a great all-purpose filling that can be added to a number of dishes, like tacos, tostadas, and BBQ Sandwiches. Recently I made a big batch, using three chuck roasts and two slow cookers. After the meat cooked enough to just fall apart in shreds, I froze two pounds of meat for sandwiches and I doctored up the rest.
I added chopped green onion, a can of green chiles, and salt and pepper to taste. Yum! Then I made a few batches of taquitos (recipe forthcoming) and several batches of Beef Enchiladas.
You wouldn’t think that a crockpot had a hand in this, would you?
But it did!
While I obviously baked the rolled enchiladas in a baking dish, the crockpot did most of the work. And if I had really wanted to give my slowcooker a work out, I could have cooked the enchiladas in the crockpot as well.
