Crock Pot Green Chile Enchilada Casserole

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

3 cups cooked and shredded chicken
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed

Arrange 1/3 of the tortilla strips in the bottom of the crock pot.
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.


  1. I am a sucker for Mexican food. This one is really yummy.

  2. 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!!!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. Oh, my guys will love this! Hubs mentioned yesterday it has been a while since I have made anything mexican; I think we will try this tonight. Thanks for sharing!

  6. We saved this last week and tried it tonight. Yumm-o!! Thanks!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
