As you all know, I LOVE Mexican food. I was so excited to find this recipe and had to try it out. The bonus, it cooks in the crock pot!! I had never had green enchilada sauce before and now I am sold. It was delicious. I left the casserole for dinner and when I came home from work that night, there was none left. They ate the WHOLE thing. So I can't give you a personal taste preference, but according to the family, it was really good! (Atleast they remembered to take a picture)
Crock Pot Green Chile Enchilada Casserole
adapted from Betty Crocker
1 can (4.5 oz.) chopped green chiles
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
1 can (10 oz.) can green enchilada sauce
1/4 cup Miracle Whip or mayonnaise
12 (6 inch) corn tortillas (cut into strips)
3 cups cooked and shredded chicken
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
chopped or shredded lettuce
Cut the tortillas into strips. I kept mine in 3 different piles cutting 4 at a time.
Spray 3-4 quart crock pot with cooking spray. In a medium bowl mix green chilies, soup, enchilada sauce and Miracle Whip (or mayonnaise).
Top with 1 cup chicken and 1/2 cup beans
Top with 1/2 cup cheese and 1 cup of the enchilada sauce mixture, spreading to the edges of the cooker.
Repeat layers twice, reserving the last 1/2 cup of the cheese.
Cover, cook on low heat for 6-7 hours.
Top with the remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Cover; cook about 5 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted.
Serve garnish wiht tomatoes, lettuce and sour cream.
I am a sucker for Mexican food. This one is really yummy.ReplyDelete
The older I get the more I like Mexican foods and the more I like using my crock pot. It's soooo easy to put something in it in the morning and come home to something all baked and ready to eat. This I am bookmarking to try for myself!!!ReplyDelete
This seriously sounds amazing! How funny that they left you none but I'm cracking up that they took a picture of it. I can't wait to try it. HUGE bonus that it cooks in a crock pot. I love that thing!ReplyDelete
I have some roasted turkey in the freezer from a recent dinner, I think I will make this with that! Looks good, thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
