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!
Quick and Easy
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!
Things you’ll need for this Slow Cooker Chicken Enchiladas
SLOW COOKER CHICKEN ENCHILADAS
- 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 1/2 cup salsa
- 12 6 inch flour tortillas
- 1 10 oz can enchilada sauce divided
- 1 4 oz can mild green chiles
- 1 15 oz can black beans
- 1 cup corn defrosted
- 2 cups cheddar cheese or your favorite blend
Spray the inside of your slow cooker with no stick spray. Pour 1/4 cup enchilada sauce to cover bottom.
Combine shredded chicken, salsa, corn, beans, chiles and about 1/2 cup of the enchilada sauce.
Divide the chicken mixture over the tortillas (approx. 1/4 cup each). Roll each tortilla and place seam side down in your slow cooker (I was able to fit 6 per layer) topping each layer with the remaining enchilada sauce.
Top everything with cheese. Place two layers of paper towel over the entire top and cover with the lid.
Cook on low 3-4 hours.
