Slow Cooker Enchiladas from Taste of Home

This is a good recipe. I think it could use some jalapenos if you want a little bit of heat. Otherwise, definitely top with guacamole and sour cream. I used a six quart crock pot and only made three layers instead of six.

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 can (16 ounces) pinto or kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 6 flour tortillas (6 inches)
  1. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and green pepper until beef is browned and vegetables are tender; drain. Add the next eight ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Combine cheeses.
  2. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, layer about 3/4 cup beef mixture, one tortilla and about 1/3 cup cheese. Repeat layers. Cover and cook on low for 5-7 hours or until heated through. 
Makes 4 servings.
