Think outside the "dish." You can enjoy the flavor and texture of enchiladas in a slow cooker; just stack the tortillas instead of rolling them. We suggest lining your slow cooker with a slow-cooker bag so you can easily remove the stack from the cooker.

How to Make It

Step 1

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add onion, poblano chile, and garlic to pan; cook 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring frequently.

Step 2

Stir in chile powder, tomatoes, and tomato sauce. Place half of tomato mixture in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure blender lid on blender. Place a clean towel over opening in blender lid (to avoid splatters). Blend until almost smooth. Pour into a large bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining tomato mixture.

Step 3

Coat a 5-quart round electric slow cooker with cooking spray; place 3 tablespoons tomato mixture in bottom of slow cooker. Combine remaining tomato mixture, chicken, corn, and beans.

Step 4

Place one tortilla on sauce in slow cooker; pour 1 cup chicken mixture over tortilla; sprinkle with 1/3 cup cheese. Top with another tortilla. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken mixture, tortillas, and cheese. Cover and cook on LOW for 2 hours or until cheese melts and edges are lightly browned. Garnish with cilantro, if desired. Cut into 8 wedges.

I whipped this up quickly when my parents decided to stay for dinner. The whole family loved it... the kiddo even asked for it for lunch AND dinner the next day. I changed up the recipe a bit simply because I didn't have every ingredient on hand... used Rotel instead of canned diced tomatoes and left out the chipotle powder. Last change? cooked at 400 for 30 minutes in a glass baking dish instead of 2 hours in a crock pot. To the person who said it was soupy? I wonder if you neglected to drain the tomatoes and use a SMALL can of tomato sauce? Mine wasn't soupy at all.

Sorry, felt something was missing in the sauce. I should've tasted the it before assembly, so I could doctor it up a bit. Probably won't make this again.

Very good, but didn't look like the picture. Much soupier.
