  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese


  1. Put beef roast in the slow cooker.

  8. Combine the cheeses together.
  9. Fill each tortilla with some of the beef mixture and sprinkle with cheese, and then roll up. Place in baking dish. Repeat until beef is gone.
