Uses for Leftover Shredded Beef

I have a few pounds of shredded beef leftover from making a beef stock and soup. Any suggestions for how to use it? Would especially like any easy recipes to incorporate it into that I can freeze for easy dinners after baby arrives in a few weeks. Thank you.

Tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc. Add some to a pot of beans (western/cowboy style). Make some gravy and use it for hot beef sandwiches. Oh, the wonders of leftover shredded beef (and pork, and...!)

Melissa, congratulations! My mother used to make barbecue beef sandwiches by mixing barbecue sauce with shredded beef. Try the Dead Guy sauce on food52-- it's really good. XO

Empanadas, a sort of Shepherd's Pie with mash and veggies, a Mexican flavored Lasagna, Quiche...really the possibilities are endless!

Best wishes!! Definitely enchiladas - they should freeze well. Burritos would be great, or nachos, but I don't think cooked beef freezes very well without a sauce. Maybe add to lastnightsdinner's borrachos?
