Slow Cooker Enchiladas

What’s for supper at your house tonight?

We had an old favorite…one I first tried out of a 1999 Taste of Home magazine as a new mom…and its become a family favorite. Here’s the recipe and here’s what it looked like when I served it up…slowcookerenchiladas.jpg

Slow Cooker Enchiladas

  • 1 pound ground beef (or a little more!)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper (I omit this)
  • 1 can (16 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (16 oz) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 10 oz can diced tomatoes and green chilies
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • minced garlic (optional)
  • 2-3 cups shredded cheese (we use a mixture of cheddar and Colby-jack)
  • 6 tortillas (I use the big ones, but I’ve got a big crockpot)

In a skillet, brown beef with onions and bell peppers, drain. Add next 9 ingredients, bring to a boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Layer in Crockpot 3/4 cup of the beef mixture, then one tortilla and 1/3-1/2 cup cheese. Repeat layers, cover and cook 5-7 hours on low.

This is so delicious! I slice it in the crockpot, as you would a pie and the triangular slices serve up beautifully!

  1. I wish that THIS was what I’d made for supper! (I made a baked pasta/sausage thing which was okaaaay, but this sounds better.)

  2. Mmm, both of you ladies are eating good tonight! I’ve never heard of “peanut satay chicken with coconut cream” Amy…it sounds to die for! Have you posted the recipe ever? (Hint, hint!)

    Btw, as you can tell, I added the picture of what it looked like served up…it’s linked to a file, so if you click on the picture it will enlarge for better viewing! Only thing is I forgot to add the pinto beans both to our supper and to the recipe here at the site…never fear, I’ve fixed it now…just in case you c&p’ed it already…

  3. That sounds delicious and I enjoy having your recipe to bookmark! We had chicken salad which is my all time favorite. Tonight is spaghetti and meatballs

  4. Thanks! I love chicken salad too, though with the sleet and snow spitting outside, something hot would have to be on the menu for dh tonight! 😉 He’s always up for meatballs! Not so much spaghetti, though the rest of us love it! I have to fix it with angel hair pasta for him, he has some childhood aversion to the bigger noodles…???

    Happy eating tonight, yum!
