Layer enchilada ingredients in the slow cooker, turn it on and forget about it. With a bit of spice, these hearty enchiladas are great any time of year!
"After reading the reviews, I doubled the water and did not drain the tomatoes, but after 5 hrs it was still dry. It definitely needs to be done at 3 hrs. If you use ground chicken and fat free cheese, 8 servings is 255 calories."- lsdaisy

Top-ranked recipe named "Enchilada Casserole in the Crockpot"
Brown ground beef and onion and green pepper.
Mix beef, onion, pepper, beans, tomatoes, salsa (if desired), and spices.
Place 3/4 cup meat and bean mixture in crockpot.
Layer with tortilla then 1/2 cup cheese.
Continue to layer by meat/tortilla/cheese until full.
Heat on LOW 3 to 5 hours until thoroughly heated and cheese is fully melted.
Top each portion with a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
Originally the recipe called for 1/3 cup water and 5-7 hours in the crockpot, but mine is an OLD model and I believe heats lower. More modern crocks heal faster & higher so I adjusted it!
BigOven makes mealtime easy!

Tatertotter 3 weeks agoWonderful recipe! Has to say it was filling and mega-delicious. No leftovers at all, plates were scraped clean! Perfectly seasoned and very moist, would make again.
HazelYeo 3 weeks agoSo good, but way too much for two people. We were eating it for 4 days...but with pleasure.
Firebyrd 2 months agoThis is a favorite among friends--it's always so popular I even get asked to bring it to functions! I never mind, on account it's so easy to make! I'm thrilled so many of you enjoyed this recipe so much as well!
tlkhorses 4 months agoVery good but not really spicy enough for Texans I think. Would be good with more chili powder, beef, salt and maybe some salsa. More rotel also. Add a dallop of sour cream on top.

marcieschlecht 1 year agoWe loved this! I used corn tortillas, double the water, & only cooked for 3 hours. Perfect! Served with shredded lettuce, diced tomato. Corn bread goes good also:)
sfnester 1 year agoReally yummy! I only left mine in the crock pot for about 3 hours since everything in the crock pot was already cooked. It was not too dry!
brklyn06 1 year agoMade this a few months ago with chicken instead of the hamburger and it was delicious!!! Will definitely make this again!!
paulavaskeroeterdink 1 year agoCooked well, but was missing something. Make sure you do add more water. Recommend using taco seasoning in burger and/or topping with taco sauce and sour cream. Would be good with black olives.
karissathompson 1 year agoThis didn't taste anything like enchiladas; this is Mexican-spiced chili.
michellekunkel 1 year agoEnjoyed this a lot. Used corn instead of flour tortillas.
Britanytapani 1 year agoFamily loved it. It did dry out a little to much. Next time only 5 hours in crock pot n a little more water added. I used corn tortillas. Also I garnished w green onion, sour cream n salsa.
dakotarussell 1 year agoThis dried out a little too much in the cooking, but that'd be solved easily enough by adding a bit more liquid. I'll probably also add a can of diced tomatoes next time, too. All in all, though, it's good stuff.
heatherroseclarke 1 year agoNot sure what happened to my comments. This was yummy! I didn't have beans, so I subbed a can of vegetarian chili. I think I.will try it with corn tortillas next.
