(For Friday Favorites we spotlight past recipes that you may have missed, and if you're starting to think about what to make for Cinco de Mayo, these Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Beef Enchiladas sound like a great option!)
Do you realize that Cinco de Mayo is less than a month away? Earlier I shared 65+ Amazing Beef, Pork, and Chicken Slow Cooker Tacos, and I hope all those ideas for delicious tacos get you started thinking about Mexican food.
But you can never have too many good recipes for slow cooker Mexican food dinners, right? And I think these Slow Cooker Mexican Shredded Beef Enchiladas from Mel's Kitchen Cafe just scream Cinco de Mayo. The beef cooks all day with Mexican seasonings until it's fall-apart tender, and Mel says this flavorful shredded beef can be turned into all kinds of delicious options like quesadillas, tacos, shredded beef taco salad, or burrito bowls.
But after seeing the photos, I think I'd have to go on with the recipe and make the shredded beef into delicious enchiladas. Both the beef mixture and the enchiladas can be frozen, and this recipe makes quite a bit, so if you're lucky you might even have Mexican shredded beef enchiladas for another dinner from the freezer!
