Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada Stack step by step

  1. This is more hands on than any other crockpot recipe I have attempted but way less involved than handrolling and baking regular enchiladas and the homemade enchilada sauce is AMAZING!.
  2. 20 min hands on, 4 hours hands off :).
  3. Place chicken breasts in crockpot. Season with 1/2c taco seasoning and cover with water. Place lid on top and cook on high 2 hours..
  4. Go watch a movie..
  5. Turn off your crockpot. Shred your chicken into a large mixing bowl, removing bones, skin, and fat. Do not drain the juice off the chicken, but dump out the water from the crockpot..
  6. Rinse out your crockpot and put in the liner. Spray liner with cooking spray..
  7. Preheat saucepan to medium high heat. Drizzle pan with olive oil. Add onions and saute a couple minutes. Add garlic and saute a couple more. Finally add your green chilis and bring to a solid simmer..
  8. To your onion mixture, add your can of tomatoes and spaghetti sauce. Let simmer a minute and add the rest of the taco seasoning and chili powder. Remove from heat..
  9. Spoon half of your sauce into the blender. Remove the middle piece of the lid to vent the steam but cover with a couple folded paper towels to prevent splattering. Pulse until smooth. Repeat with remaining sauce..
  10. Pour enough sauce into the bottom of the crockpot the cover the bottom, about 3 tbsps..
  11. Add your chicken (with juice) to the sauce pan. Stir in remaining sauce, corn, and black beans..
  12. In your crockpot lay corn tortillas over the plain sauce. It took 2 slightly overlapped to cover the bottom of my crockpot..
  13. Spread a heaping spoonful of the chicken mixture over the tortillas and top with some of the cheese mixture. Repeat with remaining tortillas, chicken, and cheese..
  14. Return lid to the crockpot and cook on high 2 hours, until edges are lightly browned..
