Crockpot Enchiladas

This meal will be on our family menu quite often. The whole family enjoyed it. I absolutely love the fact that you can throw a meal together in the crockpot, come home from work and dinner is ready.

 Noel’s Quick Notes: 

To freeze:Place 2 cups in freezable container. To thaw: Remove from freezer and place in refrigerator until ready to heat. Heat in microwave for 3-5 minutes per serving. Makes for great leftovers.

Variations:

Can use shredded beef or pork in place of chicken. Corn tortillas can be substituted for flour. Any of your favorite salsas would work with this recipe. The Tomatillo salsa I used, was in the cold case section of the grocery store.
