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)

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.

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.

Cassandra C Hammel 2 of my 5 do not like cream cheese either... BUT they do not even know it is in there cause it mixes in so well. You might give it a try.

I have found a corn/flour tortilla, best of both worlds!!

I'm going to try these except like normal beef enchiladas using corn tortillas. We just couldn't ever eat mushy flour tortillas but they're in a lot of recipes and some people love them. If you're that way don't forget about the corn type.
