Shredded Beef Enchiladas

3 pounds beef chuck roast
1/4 cup water
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup oil for frying
20 (6 inch) corn tortillas
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 19 oz can LA VICTORIA® Red Enchilada Sauce (mild)

Place roast in a large saucepan that has a tight-fitting lid. Pour in water, cover, and simmer on low for 30 minutes. Increase heat to medium/high, and brown the roast on all sides.

Once the water has boiled away, pour in the beef broth, vinegar, chili powder and cumin. Cover tightly and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until the beef falls apart when you try to pick it up. Shred the beef, using 2 forks or your fingers. Place shredded beef back into the saucepan with all the juices, and let cool to room temperature.

In a large heavy skillet, heat the olive oil. Using tongs dip the tortillas, one at a time, into the oil for 30 seconds each side. Drain on paper towels.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Spread 4 tablespoons of LA VICTORIA® Red Enchilada Sauce down the center of the tortilla. Top with about the same amount of beef. Roll up and place seam side down in one or two 8×11 inch baking dish. Repeat for each tortilla. Continue until you are out of filling. Top with remaining LA VICTORIA® Red Enchilada Sauce and sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese. Bake in a pre-heated oven for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling. Yields 10 servings.

    Two thumbs up. There were a couple things amiss with the recipe. The ingredients mentioned an onion, but it didnt say what to do with it in the directions. The directions talked about cooking the meat in beef broth, but beef broth isn’t mentioned in the ingredient list. I threw the onions in after I browned the roast, and used a whole box of beef broth, adding more as it cooked down. It turned out really well. The meat fell apart. I’ll definitely be making this again.
