This recipe makes two pans of yummy enchiladas, so you can make lots to store or cook one pan for dinner and freeze the second. Store-bought tortillas will do just fine, but if you’d like to make your own, try our whole-grain tortilla recipe. Either way, extra tortillas freeze well with freezer paper between each.

Slow-Cooker Enchiladas Recipe

• 2 medium onions, roughly chopped
• 2 to 4 sweet and hot peppers, seeded and roughly chopped
• 1 head garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
• 2 teaspoons cumin
• 2 teaspoons chili powder
• 2 teaspoons Mexican oregano
• 1 teaspoon cayenne
• Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
• 1 whole chicken*
• 2 cups cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, divided
• About 20 small whole-grain tortillas
• 2 cups Rancheros Sauce, or store-bought enchilada sauce

1. Layer onions, peppers, garlic and spices in base of crockpot. Stir to mix spices evenly. Set chicken on top and close lid.

2. Cook for 6 hours on medium setting or 8 hours on low.

3. Let chicken cool, then shred it with a fork and discard bones.

4. Add 1 cup cheese to vegetables and toss with shredded chicken until all ingredients seem to be distributed evenly.
