Crockpot Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Have you ever experienced those busy evenings when you suddenly realize you haven’t planned dinner yet? This tasty crockpot meal of Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas will astonish you with how simple and fast it is to prepare in the crockpot. Even though it only has six ingredients, they are easy to have on hand and you will surely enjoy this delicious meal of Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas.

I recently experimented with a new crockpot, the stunning 6 QT Programmable Crockpot designed by Drew Barrymore. This crockpot is only available at Walmart and offers a more budget-friendly option compared to others I’ve used. My All-Clad model is larger and easier to clean, however, I do like the Drew Barrymore crockpot, especially considering its surprisingly good $69 price point!

Six Ingredients for Chicken Enchiladas

Step by Step Instructions:

Start by cutting your corn tortillas into quarters. I use corn tortillas instead of flour to avoid them becoming too soggy. Once you have them cut, place them off to the side for later.

Secondly, chop your onions into small pieces. I like to use my efficient onion chopper, because it helps me save a lot of time. I find myself using it for almost every meal I prepare. However, if you or your children are not fans of onions, feel free to omit them as they are optional.

After chopping the onion, proceed to layer the ingredients. Begin by placing a layer of corn tortillas. Then, add your shredded chicken, I use rotisserie chicken from the store for convenience. Once you’ve sprinkled in the chicken, add the creamy filling of Cream of Chicken Soup, sour cream, diced green chilies, and chopped onions. Combine these ingredients and sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Repeat the layering process one more time. Remember, you can adjust the spiciness level for your family by opting for mild or hot green chilies.

I really enjoy preparing this dish since the weather is getting warmer. It’s a dish you can savor for many months ahead without heating up the kitchen. As a busy sports mom, it is very convenient to put this in the crockpot and let it cook while we’re at the fields. Enjoy the delicious aroma that fills your kitchen while the enchiladas slow cook to perfection.
