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.
- 1 (14 ounce) package corn tortillas (whatever size fits in your crock pot) or 1 (14 ounce) package flour tortillas (whatever size fits in your crock pot)
- 1 1⁄2 lbs cooked ground beef or 3 cups shredded cooked chicken or 3 cups shredded cooked pot roast
- 1 (20 ounce) can enchilada sauce
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 1⁄2 cups light cream cheese
- 1 onion, chopped fine
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or 2 cups monterey jack pepper cheese
- Brown your beef or cook the other meat you are using.
- Mix cooked meat, cumin, cream cheese and onion together.
- Spray inside of crock pot with nonstick spray, then pour a little enchilada sauce on the bottom.
- Place one tortilla in the bottom of the pot.
- Cover with some of the meat mixture.
- Pour a little enchilada sauce on top of meat.
- Sprinkle some cheese on top of sauce.
- Add another tortilla and continue layering until you run out of meat mixture.
- You should still have some cheese and sauce left.
- Top with a tortilla, then pour remaining enchilada sauce over all.
- Cook on HIGH for 4 hours.
- When it's done, sprinkle remaining cheese on top, replace lid until cheese melts.
- Cut into wedges with plastic spatula to serve.
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.
