Just call this the lazy girl’s way of getting enchiladas in her mouth!
Using the crockpot and layering instead of rolling made these the easiest enchiladas I ever made.
The stack is four layers deep topped with lots of cheese and a dollop of sour cream for serving. The edges of the tortillas get all nice and crispy and everything melds together into a hot, delicious mess.
The crock pot does all the hard work of cooking the chicken until it’s fall apart tender along with diced tomatoes and green chiles, black beans, corn and spices like chili powder and oregano. Five minute rice is mixed in at the end.
The great thing about a filling like this is you can use it for whatever you want! Burritos, burrito bowls, enchiladas, taquitos or quesadillas. . . whatever your little heart desires.
If you want to make this gluten-free swap out the flour tortillas for corn ones. Because corn tortillas are usually smaller you may be able to make two stacks.
