I am a slow cooker newbie. Could you explain to me how you make the enchiladas in a slow cooker?

Thanks

I made something like this last week. But, I used ground beef for the meat-eaters, since that's what they prefer. I used refried beans, sauteed mushrooms and onions, and cheese for the filling in mine. MMMMMMMM!!!!!!

Sure! Put the breasts in the CP, add the salsa and taco seasoning, and a little water. Stir. Cover, cook on low till done (6 hours? I forget. Not as long as a roast or thicker cut of meat). Shred meat with a fork (will be incredibly tender!) and serve on tortillas with cheese and sour cream. YUM!

I make something similiar but I cover mine with green enchilada sauce, cheese and olive slices and then bake it. One of my fav dishes!

I usually only but chicken breasts because I'm not a fan of dark meat, but thighs always seem to be on sale. I think I may try this with the thighs since I know the meat is usually more tender anyway. And besides, once it's mixed up with cheese, who cares!?!

I use thighs and leg quarters in recipes like this one a lot and always have good results! Usually I cook them in my slow cooker in water to almost cover them. When they're done, pull them out to cool for a little while, and the bones and skin can be removed super easy! And if you cook them without the taco seasoning (maybe a little salt and pepper), you also end up with some great broth to freeze and save for a future dish!

I missed this recipe when it was first posted, but it's definitely going in my "to try" file now! :smile:
