  1. Place the beef roast in a large slow cooker and cover with sliced onions, garlic, enchilada sauce, apple butter, cayenne sauce, and 1 teaspoon salt.
  2. Place the lid on top and turn the slow cooker on high. Cook for 5-7 hours, or 10-12 hours on low, until the roast shreds easily with a fork (fork-tender.)
  3. Pull the beef roast out of the sauce and place on a cutting board. Shred with 2 forks and mix the shredded meat back into the sauce. Keep on warm until ready to continue.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Scoop the meat into tortillas and roll.
  5. Place each enchilada in a large 10x15-inch baking dish. Once the tortillas and meat are used up, spoon the remaining sauce over the top of the beef enchilada recipe and cover with shredded cheese.
  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Serve warm with your choice of fresh toppings.

I made this and it was good but the apple butter was very over powering. I would use maybe a 1/2 cup or less. The bottom of the tortilla was soggy so I would bake a little longer then 15 minutes...

I decided to try this recipe as an option for a topping at a potato bar I was hosting. I used a pork roast instead of beef but otherwise followed the meat portion of the recipe to the letter. ...

I made these as per the guidelines, they are great! Loved it!

This would have been good without the apple butter. The apple butter made it way too sweet. I am going to give it a second chance and either cut the apple butter in half or omit it all together.

my husband thought it was too sweet and I thought it was too spicy. next time we will not use the apple butter and see if that helps the sweetness.

Stringy meat, so-so sauce....definitely won't make again.

They were good. But maybe add some of the sauce to the bottom of the pan, the flour tortillas stuck to the bottom of the pan. Maybe ill use corn next time, but these were delicious

Instead of adding so much apple butter, i used half as much. After that it was perfect! Will definitely make this again!
