Crock Pot Chicken Enchilada is delicious, rich, and full of flavor with simple ingredients. The Enchilada Chicken meat is so versatile for Enchilada casserole, Enchilada tacos, and Enchilada Chicken chili. Enchilada sauce adds authentic flavors. Add your favorite topping, cheese, sour cream, avocado, and cilantro for the perfect enchilada.
