Cook Mexican at home in your slow cooker with my Crock Pot Vegetarian Enchilada Casserole recipe!
I’m fairly certain we’ve established my love of Mexican food here… but just in case you are new… I have a first class Mexican food addiction. I could eat a breakfast burrito for breakfast, tacos for lunch and a burrito for dinner without blinking an eye. I could have an IV of salsa and still want more of it. It’s a problem.
So needless to say when I was cleaning up my diet and wanting to learn to cook healthier food at home, I started by trying to figure out how to create some of my favorite mexican food dishes at home… or at least the flavors of those dishes. At that time I was also working the early morning shift so cooking in the Crock Pot was a must!
I quickly came up with and refined my Crock Pot Vegetarian Enchilada Casserole recipe.
Isn’t it a beaut???
So no, you will not exactly see something like this at a Mexican restaurant… but it does have all the flavors and instead of making tedious enchiladas I just stacked all the ingredients to get the same effect.
My Crock Pot Vegetarian Enchilada Casserole recipe is basically layers of corn tortillas, a homemade black beans and tomatoes mixture and low fat cheese. It’s healthier because instead of ALL THE CHEESE it has black beans and some veggies. Plus you can decided what type of cheese you’d like to include.
It’s crazy how easy it cooks up in the Crock Pot. Look at those edges…. shear perfection!
If you are in a hurry you can serve it with salsa and some plain greek yogurt from the fridge.
Or if you’re feeling FANNNCCCYYYYY you can top it like this. Either way it is totally delish.
This is one of those dishes I almost always have the stuff around to throw this together because I know it will be easy to make, taste amazing and handle my mexican food craving for the day.
Because you control the ingredients it’s so much better than going out.
Bonus points because my Crock Pot Vegetarian Enchilada Casserole recipe reheats well for leftovers! I know that from LOTS of experience.
I also make a very similar recipe in a casserole dish in the oven depending on my mood, so check that out too.
