Becka’s mild chicken enchilada recipe is one I’ve made many times before, but altering it for the crock-pot made it a try-me night. I wanted to try making the enchilada filling in the crock-pot (for those who have Rachel’s crock-pot chicken alfredo recipe, the method is very similar), then rolling the tortillas and cooking them in the oven to finish them off. It actually worked really well, and I felt like it took much less effort on my part. I thought that using all dark meat might make it too greasy (since all the fat would be stuck in the crock-pot as it cooked), so I used a combination of chicken thighs and breasts. The meat was cooked beautifully after four hours on high in the crock-pot! I also warmed up the tortillas before rolling, which made them easier to handle.

Overall, it was a great experiment, and I think I’ll keep doing it this way in the future. Thanks for the original recipe, Becka!

    I am glad to know that others are enjoying one of my family’s favorite dinners. It is one I often pull out when we’re expecting company.

    Someday I would love for you to give me cooking lessons. Your blog is AMAZING. I’m just starting out but someday, I would love my blog to look a perfect as yours. When you have time, we would love to hear from you and find out all about you and your husband – though I’m sure that I can get a ton of info right here and be up to date. We would just love to hear about YOU, your health and… everything. Your husband is VERY talented. Looks like you continue to be an “angel”!!!
