Easy Enchiladas! May 6, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — dealforreal @ 3:37 pm

As most of you know, yesterday was Cinco de Mayo! And I celebrate this day by eating Mexican food, because I loooooooove Mexican food! A coworker and I went to eat Mexican for lunch and I had already made plans to cook enchiladas for dinner. And it was all sooo goooood! I hunted for a good enchilada recipe most of the afternoon that would be easy and I finally just made one up in my head.

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts

1 packet taco seasoning

1 cup chicken broth

1 can enchilada sauce

6 tortilla shells (I used burrito sized)

1 cup shredded cheese

Place the chicken breasts, taco seasoning and chicken broth in the crockpot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. When done, shred meat apart with two forks.

In a glass baking dishes, pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom. Take one tortilla shell at a time, fill with chicken down the middle, and roll into shape. Then place it seam-side down in the glass dish. Repeat until all enchiladas are in baking dish. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over top and then sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted and enchiladas are warmed through. Enjoy!

I love reading $5 Dinners because of how simple and easy the recipes are and of course the price is amazingly cheap! And I thought this was a great recipe and wanted to share it with all of you! I personally hate roast. Anyone that knows me or has eaten a homecooked meal containing beef probably knows this. I also hate beef stew. But the picture of this meal looks amazing and I think I’m going to have to taste test this one for myself!


1-2 tsp. Olive Oil

1 lb. Beef Roast

Salt and Pepper

1 tsp. Garlic Powder

1 tsp. Italian Seasoning

15 oz. can Diced Tomatoes, undrained

1/2 Onion, diced

1 lb. rotini pasta


Load slow cooker. Drizzle olive oil. Place roast into slow cooker and add spices. Add can of diced tomatoes. Add more spices. Add diced onions and green peppers. Mix. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Prepare the pasta as indicated on package. Serve Beef Roast Marinara over pasta.
