I’ve always been kinda curious about trying enchiladas in a crock pot, so recently, I decided to give it a shot. I chose to make it a vegetarian enchilada recipe, that way, in case things went horribly wrong, I wouldn’t be wasting expensive meat.

To my pleasant surprise, these turned out delicious, and I loooooooved having food ready to go in my slow cooker. It’s been pretty hectic in our household lately, so crock pot meals are a savior for me.

Each of these incredibly healthy enchiladas comes out to 5 Points each, and that’s including the sour cream topping. Granted, the cheese looked a little weird after being melted in a slow cooker, but the taste was amazing. I will definitely be making these again. Enjoy!

    Yum Yum Yum – my 16 year old twins and husband (and I) all loved these!! I was a little skeptical since they were all veggie only but they were delicious – the only comment from my husband was “how come you didn’t double the recipe?” I cooked about 2.5 hours on low which was plenty hot. We will make again!

  2. Just made these for dinner. They were delicious!! The only thing I changed was that I put them in the oven because I didn’t get a chance to get the crockpot going for tonight. 350 degrees for 30 minutes covered and they were perfect.

    Absolutely a keeper in my house.

  3. Made this recipe today. There is no way all 8 enchiladas will fit in the bottom of the crock pot. The ones that were touching the sides of the crock pot burned. I didn’t enjoy the filling either. The only part that I liked was the cheese and salsa. My husband liked the dish but I would choose never to make this dish again.

  4. Your title says 5 points but at the bottom of the recipe it says 6 points. They sound delicious.
