Slow Cooker Enchiladas Recipe

Publisher Photo
As a busy wife and mother of two young sons, I rely on this handy recipe. I layer enchilada ingredients in the slow cooker, turn it on and forget about it. With a bit of spice, these hearty enchiladas are especially nice during the colder months. —Mary Luebbert, Benton, Kansas

Did not like it. Actually threw it in the trash. Gooey with no taste. Could not think how to make it better if I were to cook it again. Disgusting.

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?
