Slow Cooked Chicken Enchiladas

anything made with a slow cooker is awesome and will normally last 2-3 more meals. i made these with the chicken breasts i had in my freezer, which happened to have bones… a lot of them. i just had to pick them out when i shredded the chicken

this makes a lot of enchiladas (roughly 10), so you can save the mix in a tupperware and store it in the fridge for a day or two

Ingredients

  • Boneless/Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 30 oz (big can) of Enchilada Sauce
