Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Casserole


I made the Enchilada Sauce the other day then I made this Slow Cooker Enchilada Casserole with the sauce. You can make both the sauce and casserole on the same day or make the sauce one day and the casserole the next. Whatever will best fit into your schedule.

Verdict:

This was a delicious spicy dish! It had all the pieces of Chicken Enchiladas without the rolling and I didn’t need to cook and shred the chicken first before rolling the enchiladas. The dish will be as spicy as your sauce so make it as hot and spicy or as tame as you like.

Both kids have asked me to make this dish again soon. I served this with sour cream and a sprinkle of cheese for the topping, a hearty green salad and Mexican rice on the side.

      Thank you! My slow cooker is my most used small appliance in the kitchen. I use it year round because it doesn’t heat up the kitchen during the summer months like the stove does. πŸ˜‰

          If you are away during the day one that can turn itself to keep warm or has a digital read thermometer those are great features to have. Not necessary but nice. πŸ˜€
