I was 2 hours into cooking this when I decided to read the reviews. Glad I did..I turned it off and it is delicious. I used more cheese than it called for and wish I had added garlic. I was concerned about getting it out of the crockpot but had no problem with 2 spatulas. Next time I will use corn tortillas or bake in the oven.
Was good. Not what I thought it would be, but definitely good.
This sounds strange to me. I have definitely made layered enchiladas instead of rolled but why would you put it in a crock pot for 5 hours when you've already cooked the meat and beans? It sounds like you would have a soggy sloppy mess. Even layered in a casserole dish and tossed in the oven for 30 minutes would give you a hot bubbly dinner with nice crispy edges.... the only thing I would use a crock pot for would be to soak and cook the beans so I didn't have to use canned. Can anyone tell me how cooking this for 5 hours makes it delish? Very curious....
How do you get this yummy looking dinner OUT of the slow-cooker?
This looks good and although I have not made it yet, so I might not know what I'm talking about, I'm wondering about putting a large platter tightly over the top of the crock pot when it's serving time, and simply (quickly, as it will be hot, so do it over the sink too...) invert the whole thing onto the platter. You would need a platter with sides to incorporate all the juices.
Also, they used to say not to cook acidic foods in aluminum foil, because of the toxins released. So I would favor using the crock pot liner instead of lining your pot with foil. Loved reading the other hints about using corn tortillas but toasting them a bit in a cast iron skillet to alleviate the slime factor.
Also appreciate the cook who avoids canned goods and additives by making everything from scratch. However not everyone has the time, experience, or even kitchen/freezer space to prepare and store all those things. Now that I'm retired, I have time to prepare most things from scratch. But when I was working and my kids were involved in all sorts of things, I had to take shortcuts and appreciated the ready made ingredients.
My 3 stars is because I've not made it yet, but it looks and sounds like a great combination of flavors and textures.
