A Winter Snow Day OOTD

If you are as in love with your crockpot as I am, you’ve gotta try these mini crockpot chicken enchiladas asap!
We go crazy for Mexican food in this household! Like literally every Thursday is Mexican Night – tacos, quesadillas, and especially enchiladas are our favorites. And since there’s nothing better than tasty seasoned meat stewing for hours in a crockpot, I decided to make these crockpot chicken enchiladas – in miniature form!
Like seriously, how adorable are these? I love how they are a fresh individualized take on a classic Mexican staple food, and they are so fun to assemble! For those of you with children, this would be a fun family cooking session!

So let’s talk about this chicken. It is so crazy simple that it makes me want to use my crockpot every night! I took chicken breast and threw it into the crockpot with tomato puree and tomato paste, and a whole heap of tasty Mexican inspired flavors, like red chili powder, oregano, cumin, and coriander. I think oregano is a vastly underrated herb, and I thought it would fit in perfectly with the spiciness of the chili powder!
Next comes the fun part: layering the enchiladas! Everyone can grab a stack of tortillas and a spoon and start assembling their own enchilada: start with a tortilla, top with shredded chicken, tomato sauce, and a layer of shredded white cheddar. After you’ve created three layers, top the last tortilla with a heaping spoonful of tomato sauce and some more cheddar before popping these babies into the oven.
