Stacked Crock Pot Enchiladas
0

8 posts in this topic

This is the recipe I used:

http://www.recipezaar.com/205983

Now I did make a few changes. First of all, no cheese. I slightly more than doubled the meat. Then I found that the cans of Rotel came in 10 oz. cans. So I used two cans and added a small can of tomato sauce.

I cooked it on low for 5 hours. It looked like chili! Didn't taste like chili. Tasted like enchiladas. It was very yummy and everyone liked it. But you couldn't see the tortillas. Daughter poked through it a lot and finally said, "I found a piece!" And when I was dishing up the leftovers (not a lot left), I found a piece stuck to the bottom of my crock pot.

Has anyone made this before? Or a similar recipe? Did it cook for too long? Add too much liquid? Or was it supposed to do this?

Thanks!

I used to make stacked enchiladas with wheat flour tortillas and they always turned out perfect. So I tried it with corn tortillas and the same recipe as the wheat. The corn tortillas almost "disappeared". I thought I just baked it too long. Or needed to use less liquid? It was still good but weird. I have yet to try stacked enchiladas again. :P

Off topic but same tortillas:

Today I made chicken taquitos. I always fry the corn tortillas a few seconds before filling and baking them.

I have a question. Does any one make taquitos without frying the tortillas first??? It would save some time.

I want to make breakfast taquitos next time.

Thanks for your tips. ;)

Do you fry them to prevent them from splitting? I always warm mine in the microwave between 2 damp paper towels. That way you can do a bunch at a time. This also works really well with the Enjoy Life brown rice tortillas since I find them to be fairly brittle.

Thanks, Rachelle, I will try that next time. We don't have the Enjoy Life brown rice tortillas, its a small store so I make my own flour ones. Now I am back to using corn again instead of wheat, they are faster than homemade.

I fry them a bit b/c I like the taste better and b/c it softens them. Depending on the brand, I don't think I need to fry them. The Mission ones are already soft. I will try the microwave tip...thanks again ;) You always have good ideas.

Corn tortillas are pretty simple--masa, oil and water is all that's needed to make them. Corn masa is actually a really powerful thickener! I would say they just need less time in the crockpot than you would think. Everything is already cooked so you are just looking for the flavors to blend.

Thanks! I was thinking that. The meat mixture is already cooked and hot when you put it in. I'll try two hours next time.

Corn tortillas are about the only thing that if you soak it in enough liquid it will become the dough from which it started. There are actually recipes out there using the reanimated dough:

So probably without the cheese sort of bulking it up, it just turned into a mess. Frying it slightly before doing the recipe maybe just the key, or cook it for less time.

Ah, okay. Thanks! I have made a baked casserole with torn corn tortillas but I only baked to heat it through.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
