It’s time to start this fun series up again! This week’s slow cooker recipe is from Tabitha at Saving Toward A Better Life. You can add a little extra spice like Paprika Pepper to kick up the flavor or enjoy as is for a great homemade meal!

Crock-Pot Chicken Enchiladas


  • Chicken Breasts or Tenderloins
  • Can or Rotel Tomatoes
  • Can of Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce
  • Flour Tortillas (or wheat)
  • Shredded Cheese (I use Mexican Blend)

  • Green Onions


  1. Put Chicken, Rotel, and Enchilada Sauce in crock-pot. Cook on Low 6 hours or High 3-4 hours.
  2. Shred chicken in crock-pot.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, scoop chicken (draining off as much sauce as possible) in to tortillas and roll up.
  4. Pour sauce over enchiladas and top with sour cream, cheese and green onions.

    I just made a whole chicken and have lots of leftovers to use.  It doesn’t say how much of each ingredient to use so I guess I’ll just wing it

    I made these for dinner yesterday and they’re absolutely delicious! My kids are asking when can I make them again!

    • Mama-Jen says:

      @NenaSinclair I’m so happy to hear that!! Thanks for letting me know :)

      • NenaSinclair says:

        @Mama-Jen  @NenaSinclair I made these again yesterday because my kids love them so much, but instead of chicken, I used leftover turkey and they were absolutely yummy! My kids can’t get enough! It’s already become a very well used recipe in my household!

        • Mama-Jen says:

          @NenaSinclair Wow that is wonderful! I will have to give them a try with turkey too. Sounds like a great idea! I think turkey soaks in flavors so much better than chicken so I can imagine this dish tastes great with turkey!

  11. NenaSinclair says:

    This looks so yummy……..I can’t wait to make it!

  13. jlcaldwe says:

    Jenny do you think canned chicken would be an okay substitute?  I have some in the pantry I need to use up. . .

    • Mama-Jen says:

      @jlcaldwe You know, you could try it! You would probably need 2 of the bigger cans I’m guessing. And it definitely wouldn’t need to cook as long.. maybe 3 hours on low.

    Ohman, this looks amazing. I think I may try it over my kids favorites (fried corn tortillas left open). I bet they will love it.
