Crock-Pot Recipe Challenge Day 13: Enchiladas

This is a great family dinner , serves about 4 people so use more of each ingredient for a larger family. You can add corn into the mix if you wanted, or hot peppers if your family like’s it hotter.  Hearty and hot it’s hard to turn this dinner down


1lb ground beef
1 onion chopped
1/2 cup mixed bell peppers chopped
1 can pinto beans rinsed and drained
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
2 tomatoes chopped
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
6 flour tortillas

Cook beef in a skillet along with the onions and peppers until the beef is just a little browned. Vegetables should be tender. You don’t have to cook the meat all the way through this is going to be cooking for a few hours.  Next Drain any liquid in the pan. Add in the next ingredients up until the cheese.  Cook through.  Turn the heat off and get the slow cooker ready.

You can do this two ways, you can layer the meat mixture between the flour tortillas or roll them up.  Assembled the way you want  , top with cheese and optional black olives. Cook  on low for 4-5 , beef should be cooked through and beans soft.

    I happen to love enchiladas but do not have a crock pot yet–besides that I am single and thos would be too much for me so I guess I will just have to keep buying them pre made or ordering at the Mexican Restaurant near me! This does look really good!

    I have made enchiladas in a crockpot too when I was in a hurry. Such an easy way to have them ready for dinner when I get home.

    Those look so good. I love using the crock pot though now that I am home it makes me hungry all day long. I want to try this one but am going to do your Collard Green recipe first – this weekend!!

    My daughter is a big fan of enchiladas. I will have to share this recipe with her. I finally got my pot so I can finally make a few of your dishes. Got it for Christmas and I can't wait to start cooking. 🙂

    I have never heard of crock pot enchiladas but they look delicious and the recipe seems easy to follow. I will have to give these a try.
