The crock pot is my friend and I use it every chance I get. This smells so good cooking and its great for those cold winter days! Great for summer days too. hehe

Delicious! Great flavor and easy to make. It didn't turn "mushy" loke some crockpot casseroles; the layers held up. It's important to generously spray your crockpot. I used homemade enchilada sauce, so I spread a little extra over the last layer of tortillas (before the cheese). I was out of black olives so I had to leave them out, but I'll add them next time. Thanx for posting!
