Crock Pot Chicken Enchiladas


I have seen a few recipes for enchiladas in the crock pot, but the idea of putting tortillas in there with all the fixins just seems weird to me.  I don’t know why, but it just doesn’t sound very good.  So instead, I opted to put all the fixins in the pot, and have it cook, and then add the filling to the tortillas.  So here is what I came up with for a filling.  Turned out pretty good too, and was again, another quick and easy dinner.  It paired great with the Mexican Rice that I made along with it, so come back Monday for that recipe…I think I found the perfect recipe for that authentic taste I have been looking for at home.

Serves 6-8 for about $0.98/serving
