Tip for crock pot shredded beef enchilada casserole recipe:
One of our favorite time saving tips is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop onions. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them.
They are such a time saver and you make cooking so fast and easy. I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need.
It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes. We save a ton of time during the week by having items like this already on hand chopped and ready to go in the freezer.
This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.
Learn and how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen! Lots of the recipes we cook call for onions and peppers so this is such a great time tip that we use frequently.
You will love having peppers and onions all ready to go! It is quick and easy.

The recipe is just so simple. We have even used the oven and it was as simple as remember to preheat the oven because we made the casserole ahead of time.
Try this tex mex dish that is sure to be a hit. It is so versatile and you can use corn tortillas or flour tortillas.
We love to use the remaining cheese to use for the top of the casserole. Sometimes, I put a little extra cheese because…well, extra cheese. 🙂
The beef broth gives everything a really great flavor but we have used water in a pinch before. This recipe is easy to make work for what you have.
