If you want a simple and tasty meal the family will love, try these easy Crockpot Enchiladas. Loads of flavor directly from your slow cooker.
I love quick, simple, easy recipes. If you’ve been following Who Needs A Cape? for a while you’ll know there’s nothing complicated in what we prepare.
Recipes that are quick and simple often involve my slow cooker. Some meals are freezer meals, some simple prep and throw into the crockpot meals. And others require a smidgen of prep such as these Crockpot Enchiladas.
There’s nothing complicated in the assembly of Crockpot Enchiladas. It is a layered meal that requires just a small amount of cooking prior to assembly.
Crockpot Enchiladas are not your traditional rolled enchiladas. This is more of a casserole or layered dish.
I will also say that this isn’t a day long crockpot meal that you have cooking for 6-8 hours. This is a quick cooking dish, 3 hours max in my experience.
This was a recipe that a previous contributor to Who Needs A Cape? originally posted. I’ve updated the pictures recently and changed the recipe just a tad. Nothing drastic at all, one or two tweaks that worked best in my kitchen.

I've found enchilada sauce comes in 10 and 28 oz cans. I bought 2 10 oz cans and had a little left over. Depending on the size tortillas you purchase you may need more or less. See below for layering photo.
