Awesome Easy Cheese and Chicken Enchiladas

Recipe by Loves2Teach
READY IN: 7hrs 10mins




  • To make my chicken, I put 5 drumsticks (frozen) in the crock pot on low with the 2 cans of Rotel.
  • These cooked for 7 hours when the chicken was nice and tender. I took out the bones and put it in a bowl with 1 cup of the cheese, the onions, and a little of the tomato mixture from the crock pot.
  • Now, take the 6 corn tortillas, spread a thin layer of the shortening on them, place them on a microwave safe plate and cook for about 1 minute (until they are warm and soft).
  • Take 1 tortilla and put 2-3 spoonfuls of the chicken/cheese mixture in it, then roll the tortilla like a cigar, and place it seam side down in your pan (I used a 1 1/2 quart pan--you can use a larger one if you are doubling the recipe) continue previous step with the rest of your tortillas.
  • Mix 1/4 cup of crock pot tomato mixture with your sour cream.
  • Pour this mixture over your enchiladas.
  • top with the rest of your cheese.
  • cover with foil and cook for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
