Crock Pot Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas with creamy white sauce #SlowCooker, #CrockPot, #Recipe, #Chicken, #Enchiladas, #DinnerIdea

I love a good crock pot recipe, this one is a big hit with my family. Prep is so quick and they turn out amazing!  If you like a good cream sauce enchilada then this is a recipe you have got to try.

Crock Pot Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas with creamy white sauce #SlowCooker, #CrockPot, #Recipe, #Chicken, #Enchiladas, #DinnerIdea

You will need

  • 2 lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast (frozen or fresh)
  • 7 oz can of Salsa Verde
  • 10 oz can Rotel Mexican Lime and Cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon Cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • dash of pepper and salt

What you need after the meat is cooked

  • 1 8oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 can black beans
  • 2 cups grated Colby Jack Cheese
  • 8-12 medium sized tortillas
  • Green onions or cilantro to garnish (optional)

Crock Pot Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas with creamy white sauce #SlowCooker, #CrockPot, #Recipe, #Chicken, #Enchiladas, #DinnerIdea

In a crock pot add the chicken, Salsa Verde, Rotel Mexican Lime and Cilantro, Cumin, Garlic and salt and pepper. DO  NOT drain the canned  rotel you want the juice to help cook the chicken.  Cook over medium heat for 4-5 hours, or HIGH heat for 2-3 hours with your lid on, in a crock pot.  At this point the chicken should be fork tender and ready to shred.  Pull the chicken out of the liquid and use two forks to shred the chicken. The chicken will be hot, put it in a mixing bowl and add the cream cheese to it, the cream cheese soften from the heat and enable you to mix it into the chicken.  Taste the chicken at this point and add salt or pepper if needed.

With the “juice” or leftover cooking liquid in your crock pot add the sour cream and mix till well blended. This will create your quick and easy cream sauce.

Crock Pot Chicken and Black Bean Enchiladas with creamy white sauce #SlowCooker, #CrockPot, #Recipe, #Chicken, #Enchiladas, #DinnerIdeaI like to put a little non stick spray on the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan, then add a thin layer of the cream sauce.  Next you will need to start rolling your enchiladas.   Add a row of the chicken and cream cheese mixture, along with a row of beans, roll up and place in the prepared pan.   Cover with the cream sauce, then cover with shredded cheese.  Cover with foil and bake for 30- 35  minutes at 350 degrees.

You can also double the recipe, and make one for the freezer.   Just make as instructed above but don’t bake it yet.  Cover in plastic wrap and foil before freezing.  When you want to cook it allow to thaw before baking and you might need to increase the cooking time by 5-8 minutes.

Loaded Chicken Nachos, Money Saving Recipe, Chicken Crock Pot Recipes, Kid Friendly Recipes,The Best Chicken Nachos

Loaded Chicken Nachos by Tiffany

Have you  totally been guilty,  like I have, for buying loaded nachos with all the fancy smancy flavorful shredded meats, melted cheeses, etc. at your favorite restaurant? I’m going to save you some money, are you ready?! Best of all, you get your crock on! Whip that baby out from under the counter, I’ve got a tasty shredded chicken recipe for you! This shredded chicken recipe is very versatile and can be used for nachos, tacos, enchiladas or empanadas.

Sometimes I just need my ooey gooey cheesey chicken nacho fix. Especially on those hectic nights when I don’t feel like cooking up a big ol’ meal. Super duper easy and very very tasty! Plus, it’s a kid pleasing meal! Enjoy.

Notes***

You can totally replace the diced tomatoes and green chilies for 1 can (15oz.) of Rotel tomatoes instead. :)

This makes approx. 6 cups of shreded chicken breast. Use or freeze the remaider for later use.

This can be made kid friendly by just leaving out the toppings your child does not prefer.

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 can (4 oz.) diced green chili’s
  • 1 heaping tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped dried onion
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • sprinkle of chipotle chile pepper
  • tortilla chips
  • shredded cheese -Mexican, cheddar or pepper jack
  • 1 can (15oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed.
  •  diced onion
  • diced tomatoes
  • sliced olives
  • fresh chopped cilantro
  • sliced jalapeno peppers
  • sour cream
  • salsa

 

Directions

  1. In your crock pot or slow cooker, combine diced tomatoes, green chili’s, chili powder, dried onion, ground cumin; stir. Place chicken breasts in crock pot and scoop some of the tomato mixture on top of breasts. Sprinkle the tops with chipotle chili pepper. Turn crock pot on high, cook for approx. 3-4 hours or until breasts are easily shredded with a fork.
  2. Shred chicken breasts in crock with tomato mixture. Stir and set aside. Keep on warm until ready to use.
  3. On a large baking sheet, layer tortilla chips. Top with shredded chicken, cheeses, black beans and all your desired fixings, except for sour cream & salsa; repeat for second layer. Bake in a preheated 400 degree F. oven until cheese has melted. Approx. 8-10 minutes. Top nachos with sour cream,salsa and fresh chopped cilantro if desired.

Rich and Hearty Fettuccine Pasta and Meatballs Slow Cooker Recipe ~ Crockpot Pasta recipe

Rich and Hearty Fettuccine Pasta and Meatballs Slow Cooker Recipe

Cooking time 4-5 hours in a slow cooker or crockpot

Start with the meatballs:

1/2 lb ground beef 97% lean
1/2 lb Italian sausage
1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 clove garlic minced
salt and pepper (pinch)
1/2 cup diced onionRich and Hearty Fettuccine Pasta and Meatballs Slow Cooker Recipe ~ Crockpot Pasta recipe

In a mixing bowl mix together ground beef, sausage, seasoning and garlic.  Form into one inch balls, and place in the bottom of your crock pot. I like to form my balls with a small scoop makes them all the same size and quick and easy.  Once you have all the balls on the bottom of the slowcooker, sprinkle diced onions on top.  Cover with a lid and cook on high for 2 1/2 hours.  They will be cooked through at this point and hold their shape till the end of the cooking process. Next step is to add the pasta and sauce.Rich and Hearty Fettuccine Pasta and Meatballs Slow Cooker Recipe ~ Crockpot Pasta recipe

On top of the cooked meatballs add, 1 16 oz box of dry fettuccine pasta.  You can leave the pasta long but I break mine up so it fits easier.  Pour in 4 cups hot water,  and 1 24oz jar of spaghetti sauce.  Make sure all the noodles are under the liquid. Place lid back on top of crock pot and cook for 1 – 2  hours.  It depends on how well you like your pasta done.   The longer it cooks the less sauce there will be and the softer the noodles.  Check it every half hour or so, give it a little stir and watch the magic of crock pot pasta happen.  It is so good your family will be asking for seconds.  Top with Italian cheese and enjoy.Rich and Hearty Fettuccine Pasta and Meatballs Slow Cooker Recipe ~ Crockpot Pasta recipe

TIP ~ If you were to use a thinner pasta like spaghetti or angle hair your cooking time would be MUCH shorter, like 30- hour instead.
