Reviews forSlow Cooker Enchiladas
"The ingredients sounded wonderful until I got down to flour tortillas. Yuck. I would definitely use corn instead. The texture and taste would be much better."
"This sounds so good but, I have a very severe gluten allergy so I'm wondering if substituting corn tortillas for the flour would be good. Has anyone tried this?"
"This wasn't very good. Very little flavor and tortillas ended up soggy. Wouldn't make again or try to improve on it, because of the tortillas."
"the flavor was wonderful. i used enchilada sauce too, and a dolop of sour cream at the end. it did not, in any way, resemble the picture. the tortillas were complete mush (and i used corn tortillas as one commenter suggested.) they did not resemble enchiladas. i would call it an enchilada hot dish."
"Made this, but had to use the oven as my slow cooker died. I did add a can of enchilada sauce as one review mentioned and it was perfect! Everyone loved it and fought for the leftovers. Will be added to our rotation."
"Great recipe. Whole family loved it. I cooked mine in the oven instead of the crockpot. Made it crispy and delicious!"
"Will make this again!"
"Love enchiladas! So can't wait to try this. Has anyone cooked up peruano beans? Very good, small beans and can freeze them with broth, like small pintos. I too will put corn tortillas on the griddle first to get little brown spots on them, more toasted flavor Thanks for sharing... going to try it tonight! just need to thaw out the enchilada sauce and the beans..."
