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.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle, The celiac testing process usually includes a blood test for gliaden antibodies first, and then an endoscopy to take biopsy samples of the small intestine to check for damage.  So while it's good to get the celiac panel done, don't go gluten-free until the whole testing process (including endoscopy) is completed. Vitamin deficits are a problem in celiac disease, so that issue does match up.  Anxiety and digestion problems are common too.  Celiac is tied to a few genes, so if your mom has it, you might have it also or might develop it at some point in life. Don't be too scared of it if it does turn out to be celiac disease.  The gluten-free diet can be a big change but the end result of it is you'll feel better.  You'll probably end up eating better more nutritious food than most people also. Celiac is a great disease in one way, because we know the trigger (gluten) and can treat ourselves with diet.  Most times doctors don't know the cause of autoimmune diseases and can't do anything but medicate the patient.  Our medicine is food.  Yum!

      You are welcome Chris.  The vitamin D council site linked below has info on how much vitamin D we need and how much sun is needed to get it, what foods contain it etc.  Around my neck of the woods I can only get UVB rays (needed to make Vitamin D in skin) from 10 am to 2 pm.  So a food source or vitamin pill is a good option,  Especially in winter when you probably won't get any V-D from sun exposure.  Foods sources are mackeral, salmon, tuna and a few plants like spinach and kale.  You can find a review of various V-D brands on the labdoor website.  Some pills are useless so it pays to verify you are taking a good one. http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/ https://labdoor.com/rankings/vitamin-d  
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      Sealy-yak - Can you confirm if they did the Full Celiac Panel? Some Celiac blood tests are more reliable than others.   
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      the whole celiac/doctor issue is as frustrating as it is common, unfortunately   my gp, who knows full well that i have celiac, tried to give me this new 'miracle drug' for ibs-d when i told him i was still having indigestion/inflammation for seemingly no reason.  "it's expensive, but i have a coupon for the first month"  O BOY LUCKY ME!  i told him, ok, that i would try it.  (i think i have an idea of what my problem is and i originally asked for something different to try to see if it would work.  he didn't even know what it was)  i'm not gonna try it.  it's a narcotic, it has side effects i don't need or are the same as my symptoms.  i'm gonna switch doctors.  and switch doctors again and again until i find one that KNOWS MORE ABOUT THIS THAN ME.  on top of that, they computerized all their records, which i have been going there for 20 years, ASKING WHAT I'M ALLERGIC TO!  i said:   umm, don't you have that in my MEDICAL RECORDS??!!  well, we have your paper records.  i said, i'm HERE.  don't ya think ya shoulda pulled my file out??  i mean, y'all knew i was coming.  you know, the appointment thing....... LOLZ yeah, i've been gluten free for 6 years, and this clown tells me 'you know, you can't drink beer'  i said yes i can.  he says no, you can't.  i said why not?  because of the alcohol, haha?  no, because it has hops in it and if you're celiac, you can't have hops.  i said it's BARLEY.  O MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!  i said, you're the doctor.  rolled my eyes and left. welcome to the board  sorry for all the yelling, lolz.  
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      Thank you! My PA said that she still thinks it's celiac....but I don't feel like she's fully explained why. Some people are hard to get a solid answer out of! I think I'm gonna get a second opinion somewhere else.....appreciate the feedback. Makes me feel a little less crazy

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
