A great, easy meal to make for your family. I love recipes that let the Crock Pot do most of the work for me!

Need a hearty dinner idea? Try these easy chicken enchiladas. It's so good even picky eaters will love it. Creamy and cheesy it's full of shredded chicken. There is not a lot of spice in this recipe. If you like a little spice, a bit of cumin, seasoned salt, or a can of green chilies could be added. The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for the chicken to slow cook in the Crock Pot.
