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 Richie By the sounds of it you could have gluten sneaking in somewhere, or maybe blood sugar issues,  or just plain anxiety, but it would be good to know for sure so you know what to do next. I think maybe the best course of action would be to see your GP and  tell him/her all your symptoms.  Book a double appointment as we say in the UK (but that isn't always possible!)  I dread seeing my own GP because as lovely as she is she is very fond of sending me for blood tests (which always seem to include liver function, thyroid and full blood count) which for someone with health anxiety isn't the recipe for a peaceful night's sleep!  But she is right, those particular blood tests, and others, can hold important clues when one has a lot of vague symptoms.   Celiac testing is of course another set of tests, which Flowerqueen has described well above.    If you do have all these tests and anxiety continues to be a problem, whether caused by by celiac disease, another medical condition or just being a stand alone problem, one book that I would recommend that really helped me understand the condition is 'At Last a Life' by  Paul David. I found it an immensely helpful tool in my recovery.   There is also a website. http://anxietynomore.co.uk/   Keep us posted Cristiana      
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Unfortunately I feel this may be common.  For 6 years I was told I was fine.  Lungs fine, chest fine, just anxiety.  It was not until I pressed the anemia issue that I got a blood test.  Now I am a bit of a squeaky wheel to my doctor.  She referred me to Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN which has a celiac center.  I will meet with Dr. Murray (who is a leader in celiac research) next Friday.  If nothing else, you could always come to Mayo Clinic.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I read a summary report a doctor wrote about me. I thought doctors were more knowledgeable about celiac disease these days, but I guess not. The doctor diagnosed me with psychosomatic disorder when I told her the symptoms (including anxiety since the intestines regulate this) I had from years of undiagnosed celiac disease that affected my ablity to function. Please let me know if you had any disabling symptoms. I have heard stories of how others felt like they were dying. I felt the same way. I didn't mention that I felt like I was dying to my doctor, though. I just can't believe she thought my symptoms from celiac disease were all in my head like celiac disease isn't a real disease.
    • How long before you know you were glutened?
      Just was curious to know what other people experience. It seems that when I get glutened symptoms don't hit me till about 40 hours later. I had a tiny piece of cookie (not gluten free) on Friday around 6pm. Saturday I felt totally fine so I was thinking wow maybe I'm not so intolerant anymore then this morning (Sunday) holy moly!! Headache stomach ache and anxiety. So whats everyones time frame? How soon before you feel glutened?

      the shakes and nausea and feeling of doom, makes me think low blood sugar.  keep a good food diary. and assess for protein intake.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
