Nutritious and quick to prep, these crock pot chicken enchiladas are sure to be a new favorite!

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 14.5 ounce of canned diced tomatoes
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 pound of chicken breast
  • 2 cup of your favorite brand’s enchilada sauce
  • 1 teaspoon od ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 15 ounce of canned black beans
  • 1 cup of frozen corn

Toppings:

  • 8 medium corn tortillas
  • 4 cup of cooked brown rice
  • 2 medium avocados
  • 1/4 cup of cilantro
  • 1/2 cup of Mexican cheese blend, shredded

DIRECTIONS

  1. Mince garlic, and dice onion and red bell pepper into small pieces. Partially drain diced tomatoes by pouring off excess liquid from the top of the can.
  2. Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Drop in diced onion, then chicken breasts, then pour 1/2 cup of enchilada sauce so that it coats the chicken.
  3. Next, pour in diced tomatoes, spices, salt, garlic, black beans, red bell pepper, and corn. Finally, pour 1 cup of enchilada sauce over everything and give a quick stir to the top ingredients.
  4. Turn slow cooker on “low” for 7-8 hours. Once chicken is tender, mix everything well. Use the mixing spoon to help shred or break up chicken into pieces of desired size.
  5. Serve over corn tortillas and/or cooked brown rice. Top with avocado, cilantro, cheese, and remaining ½ cup enchilada sauce, as desired.

Planning Ahead Tip of the Month

Build time-saving habits

There are plenty of little habits you can build while cooking that will make you more efficient. For example, rinse prep dishes as you go to make washing them easier or move them into the dishwasher as you’re working. You can also create a scrap bag or bowl where you discard skins, odd bits, or anything else you might throw away while cooking – this way you don’t have to lose your flow walking over to the trash can. A huge time-saver: prep bowls. Measure out your ingredients beforehand and set them out in prep bowls. That way, once it’s time to use them, you can just grab the bowl and pour.
