This Slow Cooker Enchiladas Recipe is one of my favorite meals ever!  There is just something so comforting about the saucy cheesy deliciousness of this dish!

This recipe calls for cooked chicken, you can cook your own or use rotisserie chicken to make it extra quick!  One whole rotisserie chicken should give you about 3 cups of chicken, perfect for this recipe!

If you have a little extra time, making homemade enchilada sauce is not only easy, it’s so much tastier than store bought!  Once you have your chicken & sauce ready, these take just a few minutes to roll up and pop into the slow cooker.

Depending on the size of your slow cooker, you may get 2 or 3 layers of enchiladas.  My slow cooker is 6 quarts and I was able to put 6 enchiladas per layer with 2 layers.

Once I cook these up I love to have a plate of toppings out for everyone to dress up their own enchiladas with their favorite toppings!  Of course I add fresh jalapeños to mine because I’m a total spice freak  but we also love tomatoes, olives, sour cream, avocado and cilantro!

  1. Can I use other kinds of meat in this recipe. I hate chicken. 

  2. Can you freeze this dish and make it later in the crockpot?

  3. Love the recipe. And tips.

  4. Hi Holly,
    Can you layer them? I have a small crock pot only 3 will fit :) . I’m looking forward to making these!

  5. Hey! I love slow cooker recipes and mexican food, so this is perfect! Have you tried reheating these the next day? If so, how were they and how did you reheat them?

  6. Is the enchilada sauce 2 x 10 ounce cans (20 ounces total) or 2 cans, totaling 10 ounces?
    Thanks!

  7. My tortillas came out disgustingly soggy. Any idea why?

    • How long did you cook the recipe for? Was your sauce canned or homemade and what type of tortilla did you use? What size is your crock pot?

      It’s hard to say as any of these could play a role in how the dish cooks.
