Recipe by wonderwoman823

Very easy to make, just put in the crock and let it simmer all day. It's almost a weekly meal around here.

These were awesome! I was a little skeptical because the recipe sounded so easy, but it made a great dinner. The meat shredded perfectly and smelled amazing in the crock pot all day. Thanks for this keeper!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Start up crock pot, put just 1/4 of a can of enchilada sauce in the pot.
  2. 2. Put chicken in, and pour the rest of the first can or enchilada sauce in the pot.
  3. 3. Let cook on Low for 7-8 hours or High for 3-4 hours. 1 hour before you want to assemble the enchiladas, take chicken out and shred it.
  4. 4. Put chicken back in crock with enchilada sauce and let simmer for about 30-60 minutes. (You don't have to do this, but it makes the chicken more flavorful because you are getting the sauce all over the chicken).
  5. 5. Pre-heat oven to 350. Pull out a 9X13 pan to put the enchildadas inches Pour enchilada sauce, just enough to coat the bottom of the pan.
  6. 6. Start assembling the enchiladas by scooping up some chicken and putting in the tortillas, topped with cheese.
  7. 7. Roll the filled tortillas and put in to the 9X13. Keeping doing this until the chicken is all gone or the pan is filled. ( I squish a lot of enchiladas in one pan).
  8. 8. Pour remaining enchilada sauce on top and top with remaining cheese.
  9. 9. Put in to preheated oven for 20 minutes. Just enough to warm all the way through.
