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

"This was disappointing. It needs more flavor. The pictured one was obviously NOT made in a slow cooker, for there is no way to get it out all neat and stacked up like that. The bottom burns, the top is nicely browned, and the tortillas in the middle are a soggy mess! I expect better from Taste of Home Recipes!!

Those who baked this, how long, what temp, and what did you bake it in?"

"Using corm tortilla would be better and I used two cans of chili instead of the two cans of different beans and topped with taco sauce at the table. Next time will sub the water with enchillada sauce."

"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."

"This was so bland. I made exactly as recipe specified. Needs enchilada sauce. The flour tortillas get kind of pasty sitting in the slow cooker that long. I would try corn tortillas if I made slow cooker enchiladas again."
