Crock Pot Stacked Enchiladas

I got this recipe from J&S Old Time Recipes. I prefer the "real" enchiladas I make in the oven, but these are really tasty! Great for a busy or hot day, when you don't want to use the oven. My family really enjoys these! Prep time is approximate and does not include cooking the meat.

A terrific crockpot recipe. It has been added to our weekly menu by popular demand. I did not have to change or substitute in any way. It was very simple to put together and had a very rich taste. Thanks! Susanna17 in Indiana

We love this recipe! I made it once last week, and then dh actually requested it a second time! The first time, I used the red enchilada sauce, and the second, I used the green. I'm not sure which I prefer. A friend borrowed the recipe from me, and she used one 10-oz can of red and one 10-oz can of green. She really liked that. Both times, I used the Tyson Southwestern chicken strips and added refried beans, a can of green chilies, and a can of sliced black olives. You can't beat this for an easy recipe that tastes complex!

This was a hit! I made it for an office pot luck. Took the filled crockpot with me to work, plugged it up behind my desk, and it was ready at lunch time! I used flour tortillas and cooked chicken. Everybody loved it. Thanks for a great recipe.
