Chicken Enchilada pie made in slow cooker

My daughter and I love Mexican food if it isn't to spicy.We frequently go out to Authentic Mexican Restaurants. People think Mexican food is all spicy. That just isn't so. This is a great recipe I have made quite a few times. It is from a very old slow cooker cook book.
