How to Make Chicken Enchiladas in the Slow Cooker
Step 1. Start this one off by cooking the chicken in the slow cooker with the enchilada sauce. I usually make this with half red and half green enchilada sauce. You can certainly use all of whichever you prefer.
Step 2. Cook this for 3 to 4 hours on high or you can cook on low for 6 to 8 hours while you are at work or busy about your day.
Step 4. Using two forks, pull the chicken to shred right there in the pot. Dump in 1 cup of cheddar cheese and the cut up corn tortillas. Stir it up. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese and top with a few sliced black olives for color.
Step 5. Put the lid on and cook on low for about 45 minutes and dinner is done!
One pot meal all ready to enjoy!
Of course you can garnish or top with anything you like. Tonight we kept it simple and just went with a dollop of sour cream! Sometimes I add shredded lettuce and some tomatoes. Just whatever you like!
