Recipe Tips

  • Prefer to have chicken you can slice instead of shred? Then cook for a shorter amount of time.
  • Be sure to always check the internal temperature of your chicken with a meat thermometer. When the temperature reaches 165F / 74C, the chicken is cooked and safe to eat.
  • You can use chipotle paste instead of chipotle pepper flakes.
  • When reheating your Slow Cooker Enchiladas, you may want to add some extra enchilada sauce to help prevent the chicken from drying out. 
  • Slow Cookers and crockpots can cook at different temperatures. Check your make, model and consult the manual for recommended cooking times.
