About Recipe

So somewhere along the way, I came across this photo that literally made me start salivating... for Chili Colorado Burritos. Not the kind of burritos you drive through and unwrap and hold. Nope, the loaded, wet, smothered ones that take a knife and fork and lotsa napkins to eat. If you are unfamiliar with the term, let's go ahead and unpack it. Chili Colorado is chunks of beef that have been slow simmered in a Mexican style red chili sauce until it's basically falling apart tender. The sauce is typically made from a blend of dry and fresh chilies, onions and peppers, and an array of various other seasonings.

Kosher salt and black pepper

mild red enchilada sauce
