Crock Pot to Pan: Chicken Enchiladas

Updated on August 23, 2013
5 stars from 1 rating of Chicken Enchiladad

Substitutions and Toppings

This is one of my favorite recipes. It makes a lot of food for a big family. I like to make it for birthday parties when the extended family comes over. There are always some leftovers for the next day. The great thing about these enchiladas is they taste just as great the second time around. Another good thing about this recipe is the crock pot. Not all chicken is the same. I use the cheaper frozen chicken for this recipe because it slow cooks in the crock pot all day. It always comes out tender.

My husband and I assemble the enchiladas together. It goes faster with two but one may do it alone.

There are different toppings for this recipe. I top mine with homemade salsa and sour cream. My husband enjoys Pace picante on his. You can also add some extra cheese or hot peppers if you are especially adventurous.

This recipe can be made with the enchilada seasoning packet or the taco seasoning packet. Either way, it tastes great.

If you want a little change to your usual dinner, I hope you give these enchiladas a try.
