Crockpot Chicken Enchiladas

Crockpot Chicken Enchiladas

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours, 20 minutes

Total Time: 4 hours, 35 minutes

Servings: 4 (2 enchiladas each)


1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 (10 oz) cans enchilada sauce

1 (4 oz) can green chilis, chopped

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon dried coriander

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon cumin

2 limes, juiced

1 cup shredded cheese

kosher salt, to taste

black pepper, to taste

olive oil spray

8 soft taco sized corn or flour tortillas

Optional Toppings

guacamole, sour cream, chopped cilantro


   Place the chicken in the bottom of the crockpot. Pour 1 can enchilada sauce, green chilis, garlic powder, dried coriander, chili powder, and cumin on top.

   Close the lid and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or on LOW for 6 to 8 hours until chicken is cooked through.

   Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and shred it with two forks. Place the chicken back into the crockpot and stir well until well combined with the enchilada sauce.

   Spray the tortillas with a little bit of olive oil and heat them in a skillet over medium heat for about 30 seconds on each side.

   Place some of the chicken mixture with some sauce and roll it in a tortilla. Place the tortilla back in the bottom of the slow cooker. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

   Once all the enchiladas have been assembled and placed in the crockpot, pour the remaining cup of enchilada sauce over them, squeeze the lime juice over them, and add the remaining cup of cheese on top.

   Cover the slow cooker and cook on HIGH for about 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Add your favorite toppings and serve warm.

Notes: You can store enchiladas in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

You can freeze the enchiladas in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. It’s best if you freeze them before you add the cheese. Add the cheese right before you reheat them.
