I love that for this recipe you make your own sauce instead of purchasing some.

This was great. Margie allowed me to use chopped cooked chicken as a sub for the ground beef, since I had that on hand. I made the sauce the night before, then put in the crockpot the next morning before work. I sprayed my nonstick crockpot and cooked for 6 1/2 hours on low then left on keep warm for 4 hours till I got home. Cooked perfect, came out clean. I love the ease of the homemade sauce and the taste is so much better than store bought. I may use the sauce part for oven made traditional enchiladas also. Can't wait to try this with ground beef. Thanks for posting.
