Chile Colorado Burritos

I found this recipe on Pinterest - as soon as I saw the picture, I knew I had to try it.  People, it tastes even BETTER than the picture! Drop what you're doing, go to the store to buy the ingredients, and make this today.  So. Flipping. Good.  One of my new favorites.  But please promise me you'll grate your own cheese, it's a million times better if you do. 

Props to Food Pusher for this crockpot miracle!!

1 1/2 to 2 pounds stew meat or other beef cubed (top sirloin is great)
1 large can red enchilada sauce (at least 19 oz.)
2 beef bouillon cubes
1/2 can refried beans (optional)
burrito size flour tortillas
2 C. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded 

Put beef, whole bouillon cubes (do NOT add water), and enchilada sauce into crockpot insert and cook on low for 7-8 hours, or until meat is very tender. When beef is done, shred with two forks.  Warm refried beans in microwave if using.  Crank on the broiler while you assemble.  Lay out a tortilla and place 1/2 cup of the meat (drained by using a slotted spoon) and a spoonful of refried beans. Roll into a burrito and place on a rimmed baking sheet or in a baking dish. Pour the remaining enchilada sauce from the crock pot over the burritos to cover. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and broil until cheese is bubbly, about 2-4 minutes.
