Slow Cooker Stacked Chicken Enchiladas

Slow Cooker Stacked Chicken Enchiladas
Slow Cooker Stacked Chicken Enchiladas

"This enchilada recipe saves you time from centering the filling on a tortilla and rolling it up. Instead, you just build a few layers by simply stacking up tortillas, chicken fillings, enchilada sauce and cheese in your crock pot. Then, let your slow cooker handle the rest. You don’t have to turn on the oven on a hot summer day for delicious enchiladas. Cheesy and tasty chicken enchiladas stacked in a slow cooker. It's easy to prepare and a great way to use up leftover chicken or meat."

NotesThis recipe can be made gluten-free by using corn tortillas.

Serves6 People

Preparation Time20 min

Cooking Time4 hr


  • 3 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 cups light cream cheese
  • 8 (6-inch) flour tortillas or corn tortillas
  • 1 (20-ounce) can enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnishing (optional)
  1. In a large mixing bowl, toss chicken, onion, cumin and cream cheese together. Mix well.

  2. Grease the bottom and the sides of a 4- or 6-quart slow cooker with nonstick spray or a little cooking oil. Pour some enchilada sauce on the bottom (about 1/2 cup).

  3. Place two tortillas at the bottom of the pot, covering most of the bottom part. Spread 1/3 chicken mixture on top of the tortillas; pour a little enchilada sauce on top of the chicken; sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top of the sauce.

  4. Repeat the layers until you run out of the chicken mixture. You should still have some cheese and sauce left.

  5. Finish the layers by topping with two tortillas, then pour the remaining enchilada sauce over. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours.

  6. When the enchiladas are done, turn off the slow cooker. Uncover, sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and cover again until the cheese melts.
